Chameleon Polymer Art Show 2013 and Floral Shawl Pins

Other than Christmas season, this is our busiest time of year.  Between store orders to fill we have been  preparing for the Shuswap Lake Festival of the Arts coming up in July.

There is another show coming up that isn't until February but I am already working on new pieces for it.  This one is called "Chameleon 2013" at the Seymour Art Gallery in the Deep Cove area of north Vancouver, B.C. and is all polymer.  It is exciting and a real honor to be one of the featured artists to take part in this big event.

You can read all about it and follow the blog that Joan Taylor set up featuring the artists and glimpses of the type of work that will be there.

In the meantime, here are some new floral shawl pins that will be at the Arts Festival in a few weeks.  I will list a few in our Etsy shop but may need to pull them for the Arts Festival if they do not sell before then.

Ooops!  These shawl pins are now available for sale at Bead Connections Store in Aberdeen Mall, Kamloops.  Will have to make some more I guess.

Where can I purchase this clay, I've been looking for a clay product to make a shawl clip that's flexible and not stiff like most clays!!

The clay we use is Kato clay and it isn't flexible. You do not need bendable clay to make the shawl pins but you do need a clay that is strong and will not break. We make them curved so they fit the knitted garment without putting stress on it. If you like, I published a tutorial on how to make them which is for sale in our Etsy shop
