Delayed Gratification - Polymer Clay Pendant


Last year I went to Kentucky Crafted, which is a show of Kentucky artists and craftsmen. It also includes food growers and producers. It's a great event and one that I look forward to each year. So last year I spotted a very talented polymer clay artist named Sonya Linder with Whimsicality and made it a point to remember to go back to her booth. And I forgot...and told myself that since I had her card, I would just buy from her website. When I checked the website, the pendants I liked were not online.

So I waited a whole year for Kentucky Crafted 2009 to roll around! And this time I did not procrastinate! My friend Bobbi noticed I was having trouble deciding and I had narrowed it down to three pendants. She urged me to buy two, since I had waited so long. (I can't shop with her as she enables me!) But it was sound advice. So I bought these two pendants which I dearly love. I have worn both already, and have received lots of compliments on them. And my friend Bobbi also went back to buy one for herself before we left the show.

I am happy to report that Sonya has some of the pendants at her online store. If you want to see more of Sonya's jewelry, check out her etsy shop.

I like the layering on those pendants! The stamped words make an excellent background for the hearts and the colors are wonderful. No wonder you had hard time choosing!

Those are so beautiful. Unfortunately for all concerned, it doesn't inspire me to buy any, it inspires me to learn yet another craft...that I have no time for.
Probably smarter to just go buy some. Off to her site. Thanks!

I don't think it counts as enabling when it generates so many compliments and smiles after the fact ;)

Glad you guys love the pendants as much as I do! Thanks PurrPrints - I like the way you rationalize!

Kim, usually polymer clay doesn't inspire me, but these are different! Very classy, I'm sure you will showcase them wonderfully with gemstones and crystals! Teri
