I met Margie Homan of Colorful Me from Middletown, Ohio on Etsy. She makes fabulous handmade jewelry from polymer clay. She has a studio in the Pendleton Art Center and you are all invited to visit her there. I'd love to watch her make jewelry. Pink bracelet details here.
Margie says that when she was trying to make the bubbling swirls necklace above, it started to look like an animal with a turquoise eye in the upper left side. So she went with it and called it "Friendly Animal." Haha.
Margie's sister gave her lots of colored embroidery thread and this was the result!
