Need a diversion from jewelry? Illustrator Paula Pindroh created an intriguing polymer cactus garden series to provide craft show customers with an option beyond her wall art.

The bottoms of each of the cactus pieces were shaped with pointy nubs that were easy to push into sand or grits or lentils. She offered a wide range of pieces that customers could mix and match.

These small gardens could provide a great way to use up bits of clay and stretch your imagination.
