BEST Featured Artist - Claycass

What a fun artist to feature this week!  Her Etsy shop is called Ardna's Sac, which had me scratching my head.  Until I read her profile, that is!  Our artist's name is Cassandra, if you read it backwards it says - you guessed it - Ardna's Sac!  I love fun word play!  Did I say play?  Cassandra creates adorable jewelry out of polymer clay.  The pieces are fun and colorful.  I am amazed at the detail that is found in some of them.

But not all of the pieces are depictions of actual items.  Cassandra also makes bracelets & necklaces using clay beads she creates herself.

Look at the beautiful colors in this Twisted Melon Bead Necklace.
