Guest Artist - Eugena 777

I first saw Eugena's magnificent flowers a while back. They amazed me with their life-like quality and beauty. She uses no molds or stamps and all her jewelry is sculpted by hand. In her shop at Etsy at , you can also purchase tutorials to make these gorgeous flowers yourself.

She has a variety of tutorials including the directions for these steampunk hearts.
The tutorials are extremely detailed. They show and explain every step of the project. Following these tutorials, you will be able to re-create the item shown on the cover of each tutorial and apply these new techniques for your future creations. The lovely necklace below shows her talent and sense of style. To see more of her work, please visit her Etsy store at or her blog at http://www.polymerclaychameleon/.

Nathalie: These hearts are made by polymer clay artist, Eugena, not me (although I wish they were!)

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.
