Summertime Finds

I've dabbled in many crafts...paper, wood, photography, crochet, candles, soap, you name it, I've tried it, but I finally found my creative home in polymer clay. I've used in in jewelry, accents on signs, figurines and anything else I can get it to stick! It's fun and functional and I love making crafty new projects with it, and now that it's summer(finally), it's time to take on a few new projects. I'm always looking for something different besides jewelry or figurines and I've been inspired by my fellow Polymer Clay Smooshers members. Here's what they've been up to...

Little Jar of Sunshine by Clay it Again

I absolutely love jars and is this one not the perfect symbol for summer? Store something in it or give it as a gift, either way it makes a great summer item.

Sculpted Butterfly and Flowers Switchplate by Kneaded Things

Another wonderfully different polymer clay creation. Switchplates are pretty boring by most standards but Kneaded Things has done a great job making this plate an eye catching piece. Just look at the detail on that butterfly!

Funky Metallic Quilt Block Mosaic Box by Into The Dawn

Just like jars, boxes have endless possibilities and this one is beautiful. You can really appreciate all the time that Into The Dawn has taken to make all those beautiful colors really shine.

Teal, Silver and Brown Polymer Clay Crochet Necklace by Handmade Specialties

Of course I have to add my own little piece! It's one of my many favorites and the crochet necklace just adds to the summer feel.

Don't forget to check out our Smooshers site at to visit other fantastic polymer clay artists for gifts and inspiration. They've inspired me and I hope they inspire you too!
