This alphabet tile project was a collaborative effort of the some of the members of the Polymer Artists Guild of Etsy. Two different alphabets were done to be donated. Each letter was made by a different member and then reconstructed. (In this alphabet, I made the letter "P".) It has been donated to Stony Brook Hospital Pediatrics Center.

Here is one pendant I made using the Magic Paper Transfers. Since I wasn't happy with the finish, I tried using resin. There certainly is a learning curve with resin, but the results are well worth the effort. The finish is just gorgeous.

A Little About Me
I'm retired from Stony Brook Hospital (administrative), and since then have been exploring the wonderful medium of polymer clay. I have two children, and two grandchildren, 5 years old and two years old. They are truly a joy. I am married to the same guy for 41 years. He's supportive of my art and teaching. I'm a Law and Order Junkie and love all books by James Patterson, the Eagles music and Billy Joel.
Proud member of the Polymer Clay Artist Guild of Etsy
Since May of 2007 I have been a member of the Polymer Clay Artist Guild of Etsy. Etsy is an online marketplace for buying and selling all things handmade. The website, which launched in 2005, has an online community that includes tutorials, downloads, blogs, and a variety of articles on the latest in handmade artistry. In 2006, started by Ilysa Bierer, the Polymer Clay Artists Guild of Etsy (PCAGOE) was formed. Today 87 members strong, PCAGOE provides a forum for polymer clay artists to showcase new and exciting techniques, discuss designs and materials, problem solve, and even encourages friendly competition with a monthly challenge. The Guild has supported with the artistry, time and consideration of its members, many different charities. This past spring, tiny clay decorated Bottles of Hope were designed by many members to be donated to cancer patients at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Massachusetts.
