Etsy Featured seller - The Clay Muse

In my post I Want to Feature You Here and on the Etsy.com forums I asked sellers to show me products that were cute, fun, and under $10. Of all the great products I looked at (and still have some in my cart) I picked Christina's shop, The Clay Muse. Chistina says, "I'm always up for custom orders! Everything I make can be done in any color you can dream up and I just love making color combo's I didn't think of!"

This is the one I picked:

barette

The description was this:

The color and pattern on these barrettes perks me up every time I look at them. They have a kinda of retro feel to me. I'm in love with the bright green to orange contrast going on here!

These are 3in French Style metal barrettes covered in polymer clay. The covering was made by slicing a flower cane and placing the slices between sheets of wax paper, the sheets were then rolled through the pasta machine until one thin continuous patterned sheet is achieved. I then took the clay sheet and wrapped it around the top of the barrettes and heat cured them.
Due to the initial varying thickness and placement of the cane slices to create the sheets even two barrettes of the same cane do not look exactly alike!

Christina is right. The color is fun and retro and perks me up too! And its not easy to find bigger barrettes. I have a lot of hair.

It was great dealing with you, Christina! You shipped it so fast and it came in perfect condition. I love the barrette and I love the retro style, too. I'm a sucker for retro.

Christina - Thank you so much! Im glad you like it :)

About the followers? I don't know. I do get tons of hits actually which surprised me to no end! lol but the blog is kind of new and I've just 'really' started talking about it in different areas. I only put the link in my email a few days ago. So I think its more that I really haven't been doing anything with it except writing...
