My creative pal, Jeannie K. Dukic, has formed a Facebook group, Polymer Clay Collective. Jeannie is a great lover of polymer clay and a published artist. I'm a member of her Facebook group and I love to visit!
Here's why.....you can learn some really cool tips, and how to make stuff like these cool cuffs that Jeannie made:
Or share in the creativity by posting something YOU have made!
I love this photo as it shows the progress that member Tania-Chris has made in her work in the last two years. Sheesh, I think the first photo (on the left) is pretty special, but look how intricate and find her work has become in just two years. I think she's at A+++ level!
We also talk about just plain getting started with clay:
I'm a huge lover of clay....not as advanced as I oughtta be, given that I've been 'claying around' blathering about clay---to quote my pal Christi Friesen--for 20 years! But I don't feel embarrassed about showing my work in Jeannie's group, because everyone is so welcoming and encouraging.
We share a lot of tips there, too:
Marian Hertzog shared this tip about making a mold from a plate:
Another member shared tips about using coffee grinds in translucent clay to make coffee bean jewelry---I printed that out for my workshop but don't have the link! Shelley Graham Turner posted it---Shelley if you see this post and have the link, please share in the comments!
I love this group and you will too! I was happy to share this piece I made with the group, and they were very encouraging! SO......
If you love polymer clay, come and share with us at Jeannie's Facebook Group, Polymer Clay Collective.
You can request an invite from Jeannie:

This is also Jeannie's blog:
AND! you're going to want to know about the Echo Creative Club This is a club where Jeannie provides some very cool components and you design and blog about what you make from them. I can't wait to participate, and I will as soon as we get into our new digs and the dust settles!
Jeannie's goal is to get 500 members who love polymer clay to join in the fun and sharing at her Collective Facebook page!
And remember, feel free to post photos of your polymer clay creations at B'sue Boutiques Creative Group as polymer clay is part of our group criteria there. I think many of those who post there are already members of Jeannie's Facebook Collective....but if you're not, come on over!
