Little ladies ready to step out

Inspired by some of the other clever polymer clay artists on Etsy including J2aney and Polyclarific, I thought I'd take a step away from my customary BIG designs and try my hand at something little and delicate (yep, definitely playing against type there!).

I'm thinking these cute little Matryoshka pendants will make nice necklaces for younger girls. Moz and I were in St Petersburg almost exactly a year ago and went to the market where we bought a beautiful handpainted set of dolls which now adorn our office mantlepiece.

Vintage wallpaper rounds

...part two of my adventures in resin. These are going to become brooches very shortly.

At last count, I have four confirmed markets and two possible ones (and perhaps more) coming up between now and Christmas, so I'm going to need to build up a lot more stock. These are just a start...

Adventures in resin

This is the result of my latest adventure in resin - vintage wallpaper set underneath a shiny coating. The finetuning continues, but I'm pretty happy with the result.
