Valerie, of ValeriesStuff on ArtFire.com is a fellow member of the Polymer Clay Smooshers guild and a very talented jewelry maker. She started working with polymer clay about six years ago, beginning with a bead making class. She really got hooked on polymer clay when she discovered mica shift, a technique I'd like to try for myself one of these days. I certainly know who to go to for advice! Valerie's jewelry is so beautiful and what she's able to do with the clay is amazing. She says that right now she's loving alcohol inks on polymer clay (yet another thing I'd like to experiment with). There's a great sale going on at ValeriesStuff for this week too.

I love everything in her shop, but that Lilac pendant has got to be my favorite. I love the way she combines colors and swirls the clay in a way that makes it look like a painting. It's not easy to do that well, but Valerie is truly an artist!
