Ask me anything!
Hi! My name is Masha (say it: maw-shuh). I'm in my 20s and I like longboarding and snowboarding and reading and experimenting with things and doing crafts. I also like running but only when I'm not in the process of it. Oh and I make 100% handmade polymer clay jewelry.
I consider myself somewhat of a purist - I don't EVER use molds or paint in my creations. Every detail you see is made from clay, though sometimes I do mix in micro-beads or eyeshadow to color and texture the clay before I work with it.
I love making custom items! Contact me via Etsy messages if you would like me to attempt to make your idea come to life from clay, or just want a different color/variation of an item you already see :)
These are the SIX new octopus necklaces holding real sea shells that I personally collected (already uninhabited) on the shores of Caye Caulker in Belize that just went up in my shop. I have a limited number of them!
Check them out by clicking here. The bottom picture illustrates the relative sizes of each necklace. The baby pink octopus is holding the tiniest shell ever! The penny is for size reference.
Two underwater fragment octopus necklaces. They are both glazed to appear glossy as if wet, freshly pulled from the depths of the ocean. These octopuses have a speckling of light across the forehead and threads of light running through the tentacles, replicating how water scatters the sun’s rays onto the ocean floor.
"Fragment" refers to these pieces being made with leftover bits of clay from my other projects (the randomness of which is nearly impossible to replicate), and I will not take custom orders for this exact design again.
A nautilus necklace entirely handmade out of polymer clay (no paint!). The nautilus is an open-ocean mollusk well-known for its smooth whorl shell, the cross section of which is often used as an example of the golden ratio in nature (it forms a logarithmic spiral). These creatures are known as living fossils because they have remained relatively unchanged in many millions of years. Click here to check it out.
