I love love love the work of HeliS on Etsy. She sculpts little animal heads out of polymer clay, hand paints them, adds felt ears and then mounts them as wall art, pendants, brooches and rings. They’re cute but also wonderfully antique looking.
I’m very taken with Mr Polar Bear who has an awesome expression but there are many cute animals to choose from. They’re a total bargain as well for a one of a kind piece of art jewellery. I’m off to eye up the polar bear again.
