Turtle-quoise Treasury

My green and turquoise earrings were included in a cute polymer clay treasury by Linda Riopel of

Linda explained her collection by this cute story:

Talking to my 4-year-old granddaughter, I asked her if she knew what color her beautiful dress was - “Of course I do gramma, it's turtle-quoise.”

...And More Student Work!

I've got another picture from Donna (I wrote about her work earlier this month).

This time, Donna followed my Steampunk Butterfly Tutorial, and this is the pendant she made. She says, the she showed this pendant on her mosaic site, facebook, and flickr, and was very pleasantly surprised by the amount of comments that she received. Donna was kind enough to provide a link to my tutorial, and I really appreciate it.

On a side note: my kids are back after spending two months with their grandparents, and while I missed them a lot, I have to admit that now the amount of my free time dropped down catastrophically...

My Necklace in Fire Mountain Catalog

My orchid lariat necklace was published in the new FMG catalog. It took the third place in the polymer clay category of their beading contest - 2009 (although physically the work submission and all judging was done last year) .

The necklace features three hand-sculpted polymer clay orchids on one side of the lariat balanced off with a half of a dozen sculpted leaves on the other side. There are six strings of seed beads and Swarovski pearls in various sizes that hold the orchids in place and split on the other end of the lariat in a tassel-like fashion. This design could have been executed in other colors, but for some reason I wanted it in gray (or silver and steel if you prefer). I think in person it looks great this way, although for a beading catalog pictures I am sure a brighter version would have been better.

Earlier this year, when this design was appeared on FMG web site, I was commissioned for a bridal version of this necklace (all white, with white pearls mica powders on the flowers and interference green on the leaves).

Another Student Work

Zuleykha, who bought my Faux Cloisonne tutorial, responded to my yesterday's post with a link to a picture of her creation. I decided to post her picture here.

Zuleykha used my technique to make her own design, which is very beautiful and received many compliments both in her photo album and in her blog.

Zuleykha is an anthusiastic polymer clayer, and has a shop on Etsy,, where she sells her pretty beads covered with millefiori cane slices.

Student Work

I really, really love it when people, who buy my polymer clay tutorials, later share the pictures of their creations with me.

Last week, I received this picture from Donna, who made this pendant following my Faux Art Glass Tutorial.

I am glad Donna had fun working with this tutorial. She said, she also bought the Steampunk Butterfly Tutorial, but did not have a chance to try it yet. I hope the result will be as beautiful, and she will share it with me as well.

Added: Donna sent me a link to her photo album. She does amazing mosaic!
