Happy New Year!

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 1, 2016, 12:31 PM

Happy 2016!

I have been begun several new projects in 2015 that will continue into the new year. It is exciting!

I was contacted by Faerie Magazine and now offer dragon eggs and other fantasy type items through them. Here is a link if you'd like to check it out Dragon Eggs

I am also going to teach again in the Polymer Clay Adventure Retreat. It is a year of video tutorials from some well known polymer clay artists and more! If interested in learning more about this opportunity click here

From January 1, 2016 through January 8, 2016 I am offering a FREE Gift with PURCHASE for anyone that joins through my link
The free gift is a pendant similar to the ones below that I call Poseidon's Treasure. They feature a beautiful glass cabochon in the center.

Poseidon's Treasure Polymer Clay Pendants by MandarinMoon

I have a new camera that I am really excited about. I hope that the quality of my photos improve! In fact, I took the photo of the pendant above with the new camera. What do you think? It seems to capture the colors accurately and I don't have to fiddle with it to correct the colors. Thank heavens!
I am designing bottles for a company which is really exciting. Everything is hush hush right now but I will share info and soon as the designs are released.

I just recently had a run in with a truly crazy person that harassed me and tried to bully me into giving her a pendant she did not buy. I don't like people that try to badger someone into getting want they want. Don't reward the bullies!

In other news :) I am part of a design team for Polymer Clay TV and will be offering free tutorials of projects using their products. I'll give you links as soon as I begin posting them.

Oh! I have been featured a few times in my favorite polymer clay magazine called The Polymer Arts
It is a truly beautiful magazine available online and in print AND I may be featured in an upcoming book they will publish soon. Woohoo! :woohoo:

Well, I guess that's all the news I have for now. :) I hope you have a wonderful new year!

Graphite and Rose Polymer Clay Pendants
I am loving Premo's graphite pearl, pewter and pearl colors. This is a group of pendant I made with these three colors. I added galaxy glass cabs and vintage glass cabs. Not sure why the cab in the bottom row second from the left looks so brownish because it is actually gray with a hint of lavender. Oh well. :shrug:

Care to take a gander at what I have available? Click here to see my handmade goodies and click here… to visit my destash shop where I sell my excess supplies.

Custom Coral Reef Tile
This is a recreation, for a buyer, of a tile I made years ago but in a larger size. Here is the original Coral Reef Suncatcher Tile by MandarinMoon  I haven't heard back from her yet so I don't know if she is happy with it. Sure hope so because she had me personalize it! 

It was made using a glass tile as a base then adding polymer clay, glass gems, vintage cabochons, seashells and charms. It measures 6" square.

If you would like to see what I have available, visit my website at or my Etsy shop at

I also have a destash shop where I sell my excess supplies at

Shipwrecked vases and jewelry
I'm having fun with Swellegant paints and patinas. :D This is a series of pieces from what I call my "Shipwrecked" collection. The paints and patinas give the shells and vases a lost at the bottom of the sea look that I love. Really fun to play with. All of these items are available on my website at and in my Etsy shop
Ship Wrecked Vessel by MandarinMoon
Ship Wrecked Vessel
Polymer clay over glass with lots of inclusions, such as glass gems, twigs, shells and gravel. Painted with metal and then I added a patina. Fun!

Check out my new website!

I've just spent my after late dinner siesta perusing through your work and remembering how incredibly productive you were 5 years ago...and you seem to have been even more fantastically productive since! Puts the rest of us mere mortals to shame it does. *slumps away...spirit broken* :D

We don't say 'awesome' over here (well the kids do sometimes), so I'll just say "Jolly spiffing gallery you still have, Chris!" ('awesome' is what I really meant to say though).
