Featuring HaffinaCreations- amazing jewelry in polymer clay and more

Today I'm featuring HaffinaCreations, another fellow Polymer Clay Smoosher guild member, and a truly amazing artist.  I've been a fan of her work ever since I joined ArtFire, and she continues to amaze me with the beauty and complexity of her jewelry.  Plus she likes purple as much as I do, so I can find plenty of items in the perfect color combination.  This very busy lady says "I'm a busy mum of 5 with a love of jewellery and creating... and now I'm offering it for others to enjoy. I live in Australia.  I gain inspiration from everything at different times. I have very eclectic tastes and this will be apparent in the variation of items available in this studio.  Sometimes my family get involved too, especially my mum, she knits amazingly quickly.  Recently three of my sons, 13 year old twins and a 10 year old, decided to help out. So I have given them their own pages, everything on those pages is made by them, with minimal help from me.  I am the Guildmaster for the ArtFire Chainmaille Guild, a member of the Polymer Clay Smooshers Guild, The ArtFire Cafemom Team, Australians on Fire Guild and the We Love ArtFire Guild and a columnist for the Craft Techniques Department of  I am an Administrator on an online forum - Alundra's Conundrum, Moderator on the Handmade Artists Forum and a member of BeadingForum dot com dot au.
I love what I do, even though I am very busy. I am happy to receive custom orders, so if you see something you like, but you want it a different colour or slightly different style then contact me and we can work together to make you something unique that you will cherish. Please note that my items are One Of A Kind, and whilst I can make similar articles, I don't make exact copies. I am also more than happy to trade."  Wow, did I say busy?  And she still finds time to create these wonderful pieces!  You can also find Haffina online at, blogspot, Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, IndiePublic, and her WordPress blog.
  I don't know about you, but I want them all!
