Featured Artist - Lynda of SCDiva

Inspiration for polymer clay designs comes from many places, nature, texture, colors, but my greatest inspiration comes from other polymer clay artists. Here is one artist whose designs are so elegant and exquisite, I draw from her creative talents. Lynda of SCDiva ( incorporates semi-precious gemstones with polymer clay to complete the most beautiful necklaces.

Her image transfer pendants are imaginative and different. She puts her own spin on brooches and pendants using Magic Transfer Paper. She is my friend and my teacher. Here is one of her designs.

One of my very favorite necklaces is a newer piece she has just done using gorgeous African jasper slab cut beads and a matching polymer clay pendant of the same colors. Amazing and lovely.

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.
