Schiller’s polymer in a nutshell

Dawn Schiller (OddFae) was last featured on PCDaily two years ago. I’d lost track of her site and she’s been busy with her woodland creatures tucked in nutshells, in pocket watches, in seashells and now with needlefelted bodies.

Dawn explains that, “Chrono Seidh can be very helpful in watch repair, as they can repair the tiny works without need for tools.” The other one, called Xmas Stockings, blends Christmas and Halloween as he waits patiently for the holidays.

Dawn is on Flickr and Etsy and other sites. Following links to her and her friends will keep you quite busy. Thanks to Randee Ketzel for pointing me to this artist again.

Note: I finished my walnut bowl with polymer inlay. My husband has to sand and polish it to a sheen before I feel comfortable showing it to you. Maggie Maggio was in town visiting her parents and signing books. She stopped by my house for tea and gave the bowl’s colors an approving nod. Whew!

    (Can’t wait to see that bowl, too, Cynthia.)

            Clever, clever, clever. Love the story that adds another layer to the watch piece. Great job Dawn – and Cynthia.
