Polymer Clay Covered Crochet Hooks
I covered the handles of these brand new crochet hooks with pieces of my own Polymer Clay canes. It was then sanded and polished to a high sheen. As you can see the more colorful the better :-)
The handle feels nice and smooth and makes it easier to handle. The colors will never wear off.

DIY Earring display!
I had my first show and didn't like the way I displayed my earrings with these flimsy little cards, and the self made rack that kept on falling over.
This is what I came up with and I am very happy with the way it turned out.
For the base I used scrap clay that I always have lying around. I covered it with a nice sheet of clay, went to the nearest Home Depot and got myself some very sturdy wire, still soft enough to bend though. I bend it into shape, and stuck them into the clay, baked it( for the clay to harden) and it was ready to go. It fits 24 pair of earrings and the base is heavy enough so it wont fall over.

Colorful Pens!
I made these pens for my next craft fair. The pens are hand sanded and polished to a high sheen.
The ink cartridge is replaceable. I used a BIC round stick pen. Just pull out the black front, and replace it with a new one.

Coming Soon!

The past few days I have been working on a new jewelry collection in teal and copper tones. I am very happy how it turned out and I can't wait to share it. I still have to come up with a name. All of it will soon be available at my etsy store.
