Welcome to my blog!
I discovered Polymer Clay about three months ago and ever since it has become my favorite hobby. Since the Internet is my main source for inspiration and I found so many astonishing pieces by various artists here, I wanted to share the results of my new passion with you as well.
So here are the pieces that I’ve created so far:
Since this bird turned out to be so cute, I wondered what I might be able to do with more practice and decided that this passion had a good chance to last.
I ordered this book (among others) and the title page inspired me to make this pendant my second piece:
I didn’t yet have the proper tools to make a more professional looking suspension, but I like (and wear)

I experimented with color particles added to white clay.
For this small pendant, I used turquoise and dark violet pastel colors kneaded into white clay, made a Skinner blend with the 2 colors and gently folded a stripe of it.

The swirlies for this necklace and the earrings were also made of dark blue pastel, but mixed into pearl clay, which gives them a slightly metallic sheen and even makes mica shifts possible.
Then came Halloween and it was time for my next little critters, made of glow-in-the-dark Fimo
Last, but not least, one of my favorite beads these days is this “System bead” or Pandora Style Bead:
