  1. You are too funny! Will have to start calling you the ‘Mad Marine Biologist of Polymer Clay!’ (My husband has a degree in Marine Biology and many years ago helped capture an Octopus for the Vancouver Aquarium. So I get the kind of brain you have. He tells a funny story of it escaping the tank, and him stepping on it in the dark hall after a late night of research!) I like your specimen jewelry. Every biologist major should have one!

    how do you make them
    please respond quickly

  4. Sheryl says:

    Not much to say, the creatures are sculpted in polymer clay and the water is resin. Just have to be careful not to make the pieces too big to fit into the jar.

  5. Tina says:

    I love all the different creations you’ve made! I love to sculpt things that people usually wouldn’t have thought about… like abacus necklaces but these are amazing!

    where do u get the vials to make those?
    they’re so cool!!!

  7. Sheryl says:

    I get them in bulk from a guy who sells lots of different vials, for minerals and stuff, but crafts stores do carry them but more expensive that way.

  8. Roger Perdactor says:

    Who is this guy? And what are they called exactly so I can look them up.
    Would they be called mineral vials or something?
    Thank you.:D

    This is amazing jewelry!, how long did it take to make that???? :D

    • Noadi says:

      I’ve been making these for a few years now so they don’t take that long, actually time spent on each one is maybe 30-45 minutes, but they are a 3 day process because the resin has to set 24 hours so there’s a lot of waiting involved.
