Polymer Clay Sculpted Dogwood Flower Pendant

Dogwood Pendant Necklace - Polymer Clay TutorGallery (10 pics): “These are just stunning. I can’t believe how real they look.” ~Elizabeth-S

Judging from the little flurry of dogwood photos getting posted recently, at the Members Gallery page, it seems that the Dogwood Flower Pendant Tutorial was a hit.

Thank you everyone, so much, for posting your project pics. It is such an inspiration to see all of the wonderful interpretations.

Below are a few more close-up photos that Willow snapped for your enjoyment. Plus, the ones pictured are available for purchase if anyone is interested.

    Thank you, Cindy and Willow, for sharing these close ups. I especially appreciate the nice, clear detail shots of the wirework. It’s very helpful to someone with less experience (such as myself) to see how the metal framework is SUPPOSED to look!

    I logged on this morning to return to the Celtic heart tute-I finished a couple that I kind of like and wanted to review how Cindy hung the ones she made. I also intended to leave a message for Willow about how blown over I was with the beauty of her spoon, and how delighted I am that a young person with so much talent in the arts is being nurtured to develop her gift fully, by parents of course, but also by teachers who give assignments that challenge and pull forward the gifts that lie within their students.
    Obviously I never got as far as the Celtic heart tute before once more being treated to another beautiful Willow project so I guess it’s just as appropriate to leave my message here. Willow, just know that I am delighted to be in the audience as you go on this journey of discovering all the facets of your many gifts.

    Thank You Elizabeth, I appreciate it :)

    You’re welcome, Sweetheart. I meant every word.

    Just thought I would share this quote I saw on a Tim Holtz stamp (don’t know the source of the quote):

    CREATIVITY is allowing yourself to make mistakes
    ART is knowing which ones to keep

    So I guess we can’t find the art unless we are willing to make all those annoying “mistakes”

    P.S. I’m not there yet!! LOL

    Beautiful quote Monique! Thanks for sharing!

    I have been doing crafts and art works for years. I’m 62 and just retired from my office job in December 2011. Last summer I was at a juried art show and met a woman selling polymer clay items. Her work was so inspiring and beautiful, I was so anxious to learn all I could about it and see if I could do it too. I found your website and really enjoyed the easy way you explain things and offer so many little helpful hints. There is much to learn about this craft I’m finding out, but am having so much fun working with it.

    You gave me a kick start with your beginner course videos on my new venture, and I hope many others will follow you and learn how much fun polymer clay can be!

    Hi Brenda – Welcome to the community and thank you so much for taking the time to write those very kind words. Sharing feedback like this really gives others great insight about what they can expect from the video tutorials. I truly appreciate your help. Polymer clay and retirement are a GREAT combination :-)

    Cindy – Thank you so much for all that you and Doug do for this Polymer Community. I basically self taught myself Polymer Clay basics solely by the wonderful sources available back in 2002-2003 on the internet. I joined the NH Polymer Clay Guild, became involved, learned that I loved to make canes. Now, that I no longer go to the Guild (Member from 2003-2009) because of my disabilities, I am sort of making a second round of learning what and who is still teaching on the internet. I am someone who simply cannot stop learning, my brain requires constant activity – and what a better place to come back to ….my world of color. I am so grateful that I found your newsletters and videos, I feel it will open up a new section of learning for me again.

  10. Cindy Lietz, 11 February, 2012

    You are a sweetie Pauline. I’m so glad you found our happy little polymer clay community as well :-)
