Polymer Clay Samples Project for Klutz Books

I was recently contacted by one of the editors at Klutz, a children's craft book publisher. Apparently, one of the assistant editors found my Polymer Clay shop on Etsy and contacted me. They loved my new Charm Bracelets & also my Pillow Beads. I was thrilled to hear from them & very flattered that they liked my work! Our daughter used to love their books as a child, because they always included the supplies needed to complete a project.

 I received a box of supplies from Klutz that included: polymer clay, beads, findings, cording, etc. The project that I was hired to do focused on girls age 12+, with Polymer Clay jewelry designs that would interest that age group. I created 2 really cute bracelets, some earrings, a simple pendant & assorted beads. What a blast I had! Just letting my imagination go wild!

Here are some of the beads that Klutz particularly liked from my shop . As I am under contract with the book publisher I can't reveal the design samples I made for them.
The ones above are my Florida Sunset Beads, with inset seed beads.
The next ones are my signature Watercolor Rainbow Pillow Beads, these have been a really good seller in my Etsy shop!
At the bottom are my South-West Blue Denim Beads, in stonewashed & cornflower blues.

  3. That's fantastic, Sherri !!! Your blog looks great, by the way !

  4. Thank you Dawna! That means a lot to me:)

  5. The last email I received from the editor said it would be a few months until things start moving forward, apparently book publishing is a slow process....

  6. Gee Thanks Dora! Things are looking up:)
