Bead & Button Show purchase from Green Girl Studios.

This year I bought less in volume and concentrated more on small pieces of art. I have a lot of kits and a lot of beads, so I tried to stay away from buying any more right now. Because some of the pieces are so special, I decided to show them to you in separate posts.

The first one I'll share with you is by Cynthia Thornton of Green Girl Studios. Theirs was one of the first booths we visited because I hoped she was bringing some of her polymer clay sculpture pendants. And because their booth is always one of my favorites.

I brought home this barn owl sculpture. It's set in a small bezel and covered with resin. Look at the detail!

If it flips over while I'm wearing it, even the back is decorated.

My mom was also drawn in by the miniature sculptures.

This is the back view of her pendant.

We had a chance to chat a little bit with Cynthia and Andrew. They're both very nice and it was fun to meet them. I'm looking forward to visiting their booth next year.

Oooh, those are beautiful. Cynthia has a photo of the whole lot on her blog now, and I was wondering which one you bought. I did manage to snag one, too - there weren't many left by Sunday, but I picked up a nice one. The level of detail in her pendants is amazing. I love them!

L u c k y!

you picked a good one. I'm so jealous!
Maybe they'll start selling them on their website???

Melissa - I hope you will post the one you bought on your blog! I'd love to know which one you went home with.

Hello! Thanks for stopping by our booth and saying hello. It was very nice to meet you and I'm glad that you had a good time. You both picked out lovely pieces! My favorite is the owl, but that's pretty much a given. I have mine still and refused to sell it, even with many offers.

Enjoy the piece of the wonderful little world my sister caught in polymer, painting, pigment and resin!
