Wine Bottle

wine-bottlecloseupI just finished this wine bottle girl and wine stopper for a fundraiser auction for my art league. Highlands Art League is in Sebring FL, and I just stepped down as director. We have three older buildings that we saved from being torn down, plus a fabulous museum. All on beautiful Lake Jackson. It really is a fabulous place. A great art space.

This bottle was given to me by my friend Jeri. She found it at a garage sale and knew I would love to reuse it for something new.

I  save all my Sky bottles and make women bottles like this. Great fun. I made one for a raffle last fall and it did well for the league.

These are all figures that I made several years ago. Now that I have more time, I’d like to do some more.

Sadie a Bracelet Display

Sadie a Bracelet Display

I use Sadie to display my bracelets at Highlands Art League in Sebring, FL. I think she’s from Miami. She reminds me of somebody’s Aunt Sadie that lived in Miami in the early ’60s. Just had to love her.

Florida tourist

Florida tourist

The tourist is home with me right now, but has done a stint as a model in the window of my friend Janet King’s art gallery in downtown Sebring. He has been dressed as an artist, a witch and I think even cupid. His head, hands and feet are polymer clay.

Princess

Princess

I think she is a princess. I don’t know from where, but a Princess for sure. She’s a wall hanging, 13 x 14.

Fantasy Fish Vase

Fantasy Fish Vase

I wanted to post this fish vase because I’m pleased with it. It’s not a face, but I do make other polymer clay things. I made some small pin versions of this fish to sell in my Etsy shop. I’ve shown this one locally at Highlands Art League.

This is the front of a small vase I made for a friend. I made quite a few before moving on to other things. It’s only about 4″ tall. I use the one I kept for pens and pencils on my desk.

Polymer Clay Face Canes

These are a few of the face canes I have waiting to be turned into something. I’ve learned just about everything I know about polymer clay from the web. I have taken a couple of class from some well known artists, but for years I just experimented and learned from others on the web. I do face canes a bit different and it is something I figured out for myself. I’m still working on it.

Polymer Clay

I have several polymer clay items on sale at my Etsy store. I’m posting a few here.

Black and White Wine Stopper

I have several wine stoppers for purchase and all are different, one of a kind.  They really are lots of fun and just the right gift for a birthday celebration.

The Girls Business Card Holder

The Girls Business Card Holder

Crazy girls and flamingos are the business card holders I offer so far. They always cause a comment. Several of my customers have made a point of telling me how much they enjoy using their card holders.

Miranda"s Sister

Miranda"s Sister

I love making face canes. They all make me laugh. This is a pendant ready for a chain. I wore her out right after I made her and got a comment from almost everyone that crossed my path. Fun.
