I spent the weekend at a huge Christmas show. Sometimes these kill my holiday spirit – nothing like retail for that – but this was a great show. Lots of good music, cheerful people, well organized venue and great sales. …
My tried and true sort of favourites: beads and little pieces, baubles and goodies. People are trying some lovely finishes and shapes lately!
Little holiday treats and comfort food… in clay. Adorable-ness as my sidekick would say.
The sheer variety of colours is one of the best features of polymer clay. Each of these necklaces would brighten anyone’s day.

Every week when I do a search for polymer clay on Flickr there is new and amazing work. Clayers are such a creative bunch and the variety is always fabulous.
Thanksgiving is on it’s way and there are some silly and sweet takes out in the clay world:
|Turkey Pin by Freeheart1||Tiny Pilgrims by MyWillies|
|Pumpkin Earrings by SuePsales||Pilgrim Sculptures by indigotwinholiday|
I’m not sure what my fascination is with mini foods but they’re tiny and adorable. The little noodles are even translucent!
As fall moves into winter (here at least!) and November really gets going, people are still claying merrily along:
- Angela ran a great kid’s class making ice cream pens. You should see the little works of art!
- Cabby Craft shares
A big plus for polymer clay ornaments is how easily you can personalize them. Some great Etsy examples:
|Bear and Station Wagon Ornament by PersonalizedOrnament||Christmas Tree by dewsdreams|
|Baby’s 1st Ornament by ClayArtbyDaresa||Snowman Ornament by MistysClayCuties|
Okay, I admit it. I love browsing new clay stuff. I tell myself not to look too much because it can kind of suck you in and you can find elements of other’s designs creeping into your own.Sometimes, though, there …
Okay so these Etsy finds are more of the fun spooky than spooky spooky but clayers are talented folks and Halloween is certainly an entertaining theme:
|Bat Boy by APieceOfLisa||Frankenpod Squid by Noadi|
|Tombstone Earrings by PixieHearts||Zombie Pet|
Fan picks, bright colours, great textures and interesting images. Basically, polymer clay peeps are super creative.
When I am trying to think of themes to use for my Etsy related posts, I’ll occasionally ask my daughter for inspiration. As she was thinking about it our old man cat gingerly jumped up on the sofa between us …
I realize it’s barely the end of Thanksgiving (where I am!) but I’ve been making Christmas items pretty solidly since summer and as a result I’ve been seeing all the OTHER Christmas work the talented clayers out on the internet …
People keep doing amazing polymer clay work! The shiny faux glass caught my eye first and then it was a whole long list of neat pieces.
