I did it!!!!!

For forever I've shied away from doing a market..... do not know why.

Twice a year a gift shop in town has an artmarket and I just decided I have to close my eyes and do it! It was sooooooo much fun. I loved the people, the conversations, sharing my art and educating others about polymer clay.
I had a few surprised reactions to the material..... it is as if they cannot believe that it is just polymer clay.

Perhaps in a few months time I'll do it again....

Sun Ruffles

Mila lives in Belgrade in Serbia. She's director of customer service for an electronic company and makes jewelry to feed her soul in her workshop at home.
A few weeks ago she purchased my ruffle bead tutotrial and great was my surprise when I got the most beautiful pictures of the stunning beads she made.
She made the neckpiece for a competition with "Sun" as a theme... I think it's just perfect!!!!
It is always interesting to see how every artist interprets a tutorial, a picture, a inspirational piece..... everyone "sees" differently.... in his or her own unique way.

You can see more of Mila's work on her Flickr page
