Lady Brooches

If it seems like I disappeared off the face of the earth, it’s because of a challenge I’ve been working on. I decided to attend a three-day workshop in October in Indianapolis, called IndyJam, where people who work with polymer clay get together to take workshops and generally have a big party. One of the features of IndyJam is a “swap.” Everyone makes some somethings – enough for every other person at the workshop – and brings them to IndyJam, and then we swap all the things we brought for all the things everyone else brought. I’m making ladies, the size of brooches, with pins on the back. You will see them under the heading, Brooch. By the time October comes around, I will have made more than 50 of them!

You can do me a big favor. Let me know which ones you like the best and, if you can, a little bit about why you like those particular ones. I’m thinking about making them for sale and I’d like to get a feel for what appeals to people. Thank you!


  1. What a delightful read through many of your posts. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Regarding the ‘Lady Brooches’, I have a preferance for the yarn hair that has been fluffed or changed in a way so it looks less like yarn. Your Ladies are all so fun, but you ask which we like best and why. I liked Greenie, Yellow Oranges, Bargello, Blue Water, Crackling Silver, and Dots, dots, dots. And the common thread seems to be a body that is one single pattern. Hope this answers your question the way you wish.
