More New Santas For the Holiday Collection, And A PCD Feature!


My friend Pippa Chandler (thank you, Pippa!) was the first to tell me this morning that my "Santa Americana" necklace and my 2011 Holiday Collection are being featured by Cynthia Tinapple today at Polymer Clay Daily

Oh, my stars, what a thrill!  I hope the boss doesn't actually expect me to work now.  Who could concentrate?  I think I will hang out on Cloud 9 all day today.   Climb on up and join me, we'll have a party!

Seriously, though, thank you so much, Cynthia.   It is a such an honor to have your work shown at PCD.  I know many polymer artists have the site bookmarked to visit every day, as do I.  I am constantly inspired and awed by the talent and creativity displayed there, and it means more than I can say to be included.    

If I can bring myself back down to Earth tomorrow, I am going to do a few more pendants for the holiday collection, including one or two brooches.  I love to wear Christmas brooches, another tradition my Grandmothers began.  I remember my maternal Grandmother had a gold enameled holly and berry leaf pin she wore, along with her Christmas aprons.  My paternal grandmother, a Baptist preacher's wife, always wore a pin depicting Jesus's hands folded in prayer.

These are a few I put together last night.  I am waiting on some new chain and clasps to finish them, but these will be a little less ornately embellished and a little less expensive.  Look for them in the Etsy shop shortly! 

Happy Holidays, everyone.  I hope it is a blessed and joyous one for everyone.
