Little Crab Friends!



Larrie (the blue crab) has found buried treasure! This little hermit is holding a beautiful long lost freshwater pearl necklace... that he wants to give to a very special someone.... you! Larrie was created using polymer clay and a vacant shell. His body has been wired into the shell so he wont fall out. He is covered in blue shimmer powder. Larrie's little patch of earth has real shells embedded and a necklace which has been wired into the base. The base has also been coated in gold shimmer powder. Larrie is removable from his base.
Lexie(the red crab) is no "hermit"! She loves to party with friends! Her favorite way to spend the day is relaxing on the beach with a DP in one claw and a bag of potato chips in the other! Lexie the hermit crab was created using polymer clay and a vacant shell. Her body has been wired into the shell so he wont fall out. She is covered in blue shimmer powder. Lexie's little patch of earth has real shells and 3 freshwater pearls embedded into the base. The base has also been coated in gold shimmer powder. Lexie is removable from her base.

Country Angel Cutie


This is my first attempt at creating an Angel! I like the way she turned out. Her body, wings and face was created using polymer clay. Her wings and body have support wire going through them. She has glass bead eyes and shimmer powder dusted on her body, face and wings. I used bonded fabric to transparent clay to creat her simple dress. Her hair was partly "plugged" into holes on her head and some pieces were simply glued on (this was also my first time using hair and I didn't make all the plug holes big enough). I have pulled at her hair to make sure it isn't going to fall off... and her curls are attached very good!
She is not quite 2" tall. I am attaching a pin to her back (not shown in photos) so she can be worn with an outfit or a ribbon can be strung through to pin to make her a hanging ornament! As the base of her body is round, she can't stand up very well without support (but hey, aren't Angels supposed to fly?).

She is for sale at Etsy-

Lily The Baby Dragon-Fly







This is one of my favorite sculptures! I am trying to get away from the "jewelry" sculptures (trying to break away from the Christi F. style- I love her style, but I won't to find my own).

Here is Lily's description-
Lily is a beautiful baby dragonfly. DragonFlys stay hidden in flowers fields and forests until they are old enough to come out and find their life long friend. This is the person who they will follow faithfully and protect loyally... How about adopting Lily and let her be your little guardian?Lily was sculpted using polymer clay. She has beautiful brown glass eyes. Her body has a coating of shimmery fairy dust and a satin gloss finish. Her wings were made by the very talented artist "Pat Carlson". Check out more of her stuff at- http://www.cdhm.org/user/skywindpuppettheatres.
