The theme for this week's Blog Roll is Everything Is Just Beachy, which is very fitting for what is usually considered the beginning of Summer. Many people celebrate Memorial Day as the unofficial start of summer, having cookouts, opening their pools, going camping, and having family get togethers. And the weather (in my neck of the woods at least) usually gets pretty warm during this weekend, making a dip in the pool or lake very inviting! This is when we often see the upper 80's or even 90's, and this is when I really miss living right on the lake! The members of The Polymer Clay Smooshers guild have created all sorts of wonderful beach themed clay items, and I wanted to showcase a few of them on this long holiday weekend.
What's a beach without a lighthouse? This Lighthouse ACEO is a micromosaic from Kael Mijoy with tons of tiny detail.
And of course mermaids like to hang out at the beach too. This cute little mermaid from Kimis Jewelry From The Heart can be made into a bracelet or a necklace- your choice!
And while you're swimming you might be lucky enough enough to discover a seahorse like this one from Luvbeads by LL.
And this pin from Mortimer Inc is called Life's a Beach- just perfect for this week's theme!
You can also find unique and interesting starfish while at the beach. This purple starfish pendant from Tina Holden Design is just beautiful!
And those are just a few of the beachy creations from some of the Smooshers! You can click on any of the pictures to be directed to the listing and learn more about each of these wonderful pieces.
