Contemporary handcut designs plus old, distressed finishes equal chic in the polymer clay jewelry of Maryland’s Tamara on her Etsy Block Party Press site.

Using stamps handcarved with her own distinctive designs, she impresses the clay and then brings out the texture with acrylic paints. Tamara’s been featured recently on trendy sites like cuteable.

My order arrived with a bounty of additional cards, coupons and goodies. A nice way to start the week.
