Tokens that inspire

Andrew Thornton stamps inspiration in polymer on PolymerClayDaily.com

Pennsylvania’s Andrew Thornton (AllegoryGallery) must carve stamps while he watches tv. This polymer token was inspired by Oprah’s speech the other night. He turns quotes into tokens that customers carry with them as reminders and for luck.

He has a new batch of inspirational charms on his Instagram, Etsy and blog pages. The paints and metallic touches that he adds after curing bring his small amulets to life?

What words would you use for reminders and for luck?

Criminal polymer

Jen Parrish-Hill's relics on television's Criminal Minds on PolymerClayDaily.com

Jen Parrish-Hill (Parrish Relics) posted another entry to her Relics Get Around board on Pinterest. This time one of her Stained Glass Amulets made an appearance on season one/episode 5 of the television series Criminal Minds (find it on Netflix).

Jen’s friends and customers keep sharp eyes on television wardrobes for her distinctive amulets and relics.

“I enjoy creating designs that tell visual stories and start conversations, that are more than simple adornment. I like to think of them as charms and talismans that also bring a bit of magic and beauty to a wardrobe.” Over the years Jen has created a number of pieces for the entertainment industry that she catalogs on her Pinterest board and shows on Instagram. Nice way to advertise, eh?
