Meet Valerie from Emily Claire Creations

Huh? If her name is Valerie, why Emily Claire Creations? Valerie says she is so inspired by her two daughters that her studio was named after them.

When I think of her, I think faux. Faux stone, faux ceramic, faux metal - I love how she mastered to imitate things in polymer clay to make them look real.
She herself is not "faux" at all. She is a lovely person, witty, helpful and incredibly talented. I'm very glad to have met her.

Now let's have a look at some of my favorite items in her ArtFire studio.

I love trees and I like the feel of these earrings. They remind me of little tokens that we used to collect as children, only much more beautiful!

With this item Valerie would have fooled me at first sight. I really thought it was precious metal clay and was surprised for a moment because I didn't know she worked with it. She doesn't, it's polymer clay. Isn't it amazing?

Now to my very favorite piece, the Spring Wild Flowers choker. How she made the clay resemble sandstone like this, I don't know, but I love the effect she created.

You can also find Valerie on her blog and now last, but not least at all - she is having a sale, 15 % off!! What are you waiting for? Run!
