Marvelous Mondays - CatsWire

Welcome to the next Marvelous Mondays!  This week, we are focusing on CatsWire!

CatsWire, like many Smooshers, doesn't just focus on clay, but branches into a multitude of mediums. She combines her talents to bring out the best of her creations.

In this piece, she combines her talent with polymer clay and needlelace to create this unique and beautiful set of earrings.

In this piece, she combines a beautiful shell with her talent in needlelace to create a one of a kind pendant.

This beautiful pendant is a rose made of polymer clay, held tenderly with wire crochet.

Another great example of CatsWire wire crochet is this adorable octopus pendant, who is holding on tightly to lampwork bead by Deronda.

These are just a few of the amazing pieces in CatsWire's Artfire shop!
Be sure to check back next Monday for the next featured artist!

Tickle Me Pink

The theme for this week's blog post in the Polymer Clay Smooshers Guild is Tickle Me Pink!

Clay Cat shop has this beautiful mother and baby fairy sculpture to celebrate the joy of life.
Kneaded Things created this beautiful butterfly and flower light switch cover.

  Positively Charming Things created this adorable unicorn...I grew up collecting unicorns and they always made me smile, since my grandmother was the person that introduced them to me.

Check out this beautiful pendant from Valerie's Stuff.
