How to Scent Polymer Clay for a TP and Poo Jewelry Necklace Project

TP and Poo Polymer Clay Necklace by DogEatDog Productions

Kidding! However, this article will touch on both topics, Scented Clay + Poop Jewelry … just not in the same whiff:

I found this very cute version of a TP and Poo polymer clay necklace on Etsy the other day. It’s handmade by Ryssa of DogEatDog Productions. Earlier this month, Ryssa and I started up a discussion about scenting polymer clay miniature food charms. Together we managed to come up with some helpful tips on adding sweet aromas to things like: chocolate earrings, cookie beads, fruit cake pendants and donut jewelry. Here’s a link to that post if you would like to more info: Scented Polymer Clay

At the time, Ryssa did not mention anything about her TP and Poo jewelry pendant necklace creation. I just hope she’s not planning to start a new stinky bead trend or anything like that. And if she is, we can all be glad that the Internet hasn’t figured out how to pass along smelly bytes of digital data through our cable modems yet. LOL.

Don’t hold your breath though (couldn’t resist adding the pun… sorry). I wouldn’t be at all surprised if someone someday figures out how to make our web sites smell pretty. Sound and video has already been done, so our noses are next.

Anyway, when I first saw Ryssa’s very cute polymer clay TP and Poo Necklace, I giggled out loud and said to myself, “My 12 year old daughter would absolutely love this!” And she did… as do I.

So what do YOU think? Would you wear something like this? I’d really like to know! How about scented bead jewelry? Would you like to hear more about how to scent polymer clay? The sweet smelling stuff of course! ;-)

    I did a bit more Google research and was surprised / shocked / perplexed / delighted (obviously my emotions were all over the map), to learn that there is a whole culture of jewelry artists making poop jewelry and related items. Deer and moose poop brooches; bird poop necklaces; dinosaur poop pendants. Pretty wild stuff!

    this is so funny. makes me wish I used polymer clay so I could add a scent to it. you have the greatest ideas

  3. Cindy Lietz, 30 June, 2008

    Thank You Shoozles! Yeah I bet it would be tricky to scent your beautiful glass beads! You’ll have to make some little glass vials to hold some scents instead!!

    A culture of poop lovers. Who knew?

    Nahhh. I don’t think I could do it.

    However, on the subject of TP, you can get hibiscus-pattern toilet paper for your next luau at Oriental Trading Company. Kid you not. Had us giggling.

    It would take a sassy type of gal to wear a tp and poo necklace like this, Cat! My daughter comes to mind! Though if it were scented, she may not be quite so interested!

    I’ll try to remember Orental Trading next time I have a Luau, that toilette paper would be a nice touch! :-)

    Cindy I have not been able to find DogeatDog Productions by Ryssa on Etsy any where. Where is she? I would love to see some more of her stuff. Loved this article, my grandkids woul love these necklaces and I would love to scent some of my flowers. Thanks.

  9. Cindy Lietz, 24 August, 2008

    Hi CraftyLinda! The best way to find someone on Etsy if you know their store name is to first click on the down arrow in the search box and select ‘Sellers: usernames’. Then type in their store name in the box on the right.

    I did this and she showed up. Bad news is, her store is closed until the end of August/08 so you won’t be able to buy anything until then. But you can look at her sold items to see what she has made and sold before.

    To look at anyones sold items, Click the ‘Shop Home’ link at the top right-hand side of the page. On that page scroll down and on the right-hand side you will find the number of sales under the title of ‘other items’. Click on that to see the sold items.

    Hope that helps!

    I can emagine eucaliptus scented beads for when you have a cold.

  11. Cindy Lietz, 13 September, 2008

    That is an interesting idea Andrea! Though I think the scent may not be strong enough to make a difference. :-(

    I make genuine deer poo jewelry. I live in Montana. I hand paint them before the polymer coat. Can I get on your mailing list?

  13. Cindy Lietz, 12 September, 2009

    Absolutely Nancy. You can sign up for my free mailing list at the “Polymer Clay Tutorials” link by my name above.

  14. Nancy Heyer, 13 September, 2009


    I am so happy to visit with someone who relates to this unusual craft! My work is exclusively with deer drops since they live in our back yard here in Montana.

    I will be signed up for certain. Thanks so much

    LOL! I’m really glad you like my necklace. :). I was suprised, plesantly, to see this post. It’s always nice to know that peeps are enjoying my creations. Oh, and no, I never scented the lil poopie guy.

  16. Cindy Lietz, 21 April, 2010

    GREAT to hear from Ryssa. It’s almost been 2 years since I published this article about your cute little TP and Poo creations. But as the saying goes… “Better late than never!” Hope all is well with you and polymer clay :-)

  17. Phaedrakat, 21 April, 2010

    The TP is so cute! I would wear smiling TP earrings, but I’d have to pass on the poo! (Especially scented. Yuk!) But I know my neices would go for this type of thing. It’s a smart idea! I’ll bet Ryssa gets lots of sales on these…

  18. Beth Wilson, 19 October, 2012

    I personally would NOT wear something like that – the TP and poo necklace. However, that’s just me. Everyone is different and that’s a good thing! I love scented food jewelry.

    She should add a little yellow “pee” teardrop!!!! Lol

  20. Cindy Lietz, 14 September, 2016

    Ewwww that’s yucky Mary! lol :)
