Polymer is fun, it can do so many things, and it works so well with other elements.
Here are some interesting and fun finds with polymer and other elements
Steam punk fairy this is too funny--in a good way!
It incorporates other materials well
Look at this colorful pendant by juliespace It includes a variety of glass beads
And another, yet different idea:
this is silver clay with polymer added for color byPeculiarForest
So many ideas so little time

Of course that falls into me as catalyst.
I am. With out actually working too hard at it, I manage to get other people going.
This fairy or muse face was actually done as a quick sample. I mostly used scrap clay and what ever beads were out when I "slapped" her together. It wasn't until later that i noticed she matched a back of turquoise I got in New Mexico. At that point I knew she was going to be strung on those beads. Now that was over 1 year and a half ago.
I am very pleased with how she did end up turning out. And Im on a roll just finishing things. I have only one item left in the big things to finish box!!! Of course it feels like there are a million things in the box of little things to finish, but Im starting some place!
I took her to my dance class this evening to show off. One of my students is getting married in a few weeks, she saw this and thought she was adorable, I asked if I could make her cake topper as her wedding gift--she was thrilled!
What have I done?
I mean yes, this is what i want to do, this is the direction I want to take my crafting work, I did it I made and took my big first step!
Dancing Diana and Polymer Polly were my test walks. Its now time to run!
Once the wedding topper is done, I will put them on etsy!

So now Ive been playing with making beads. These samples of mine arent even my best ones--just the ones I have a photo of! lol!
I went searching to see what others are doing bead creation-wise.
There is some very beautiful work out there for the buying!
This set of beads has a nice spring like quality with out the pollen.
And check out these "jade" beads! Those are made from polymer clay
heres another nifty set of beads. I love the swirlies! Im still developing the skills to do the swirly shape--its not as easy to get a really good and clean swirl as they make it look. These are by oneandonly.etsy.com
