This blog is about my journey from "un-creative" to "artisan". I enjoy creating custom pieces for people who know what they want and don't want to search retail stores or pay high prices. I also maintain inventory for "touchy-feely" people like me. Unique, affordable, and fun are the qualities I promote; but I have also expanded into elegant for weddings and other more formal events; still affordable.
Still exploring the potential of polymer clay and after discussing the idea with a friend who arranges flowers for gifts and events; I decided to give flowers a try. I so do not have a green thumb; yet there are a few plants that seem to be able to survive me. Unfortunately those plants don't flower. Philodendron, for example, is a very hardy plant, but all green. I figured there must be other people like me who would like some pops of color that wouldn't wilt. Thus was born my flower garden. Take some imagination; add colorful clay, wire, tape, glaze, and flower stakes and you have a single pop of color, or a bouquet that will stay beautiful. The cost is about what you would pay for fresh flowers that will be gone in a week or so. They are fun, easy to customize, and affordable, even if quantity is needed for an event. These pictures are of my first attempt at flowers; and while I like the look, I will be trying some using a technique that will add more color and shine, possibly some beads for sparkle. New and improved flowers, coming soon.
