a new venture and a new shop :)

as you all know, i've been meddling with polymer clay and have really really enjoyed it :) i've also found twirling silver wires very relaxing! so when you combine these two, the result is a new shop at etsy :) VERY NEW :)

the shop is called ITHILIEN... a place in middle earth ... where else :)

the reason for a new shop is becoz i didn't want to mix houseware with adornment. just doesn't feel right ... me being me LOL!!! i still dunno if it's a good move but if i dun try i'll never know :)

so here's the 4 (only) pendants i listed.

hidden forest


elven mist

and guess where this one came from? hihihi ... yea ... the tutorial :) i've since added the twirls, baked it and called it ...

midnight bloom

fingers crossed ... hope this works!

happy pimping! :)


  1. Good for you for opening another shop! Hope it sees great success and sales :)

  2. The Pendants are wonderful! I love pc, I'm so glad you are enjoying it!! Your pendants are beautiful. Love the new shop! I'm wishing you tons of success there!! xo

  3. These are beautiful!

    I was planning to try making some clay pendants tomorrow, but then life got in the way and I will instead be traveling to my Mom's to help out.

    Clay is on the back burner, but can't wait to try it when I get home. It looks like so much fun.

    Good Luck with your new shop,


  4. congratulations! and best of luck... the pendants are beautiful...

  5. They are beautiful good luck with them. Much success.

  6. Wow, I love the pendants- they look so good with the wire wrap!

    And I love your shop name choice, of course! ;) Gondor, right? (I did have to look that up, though- it sounded familiar but I couldn't remember where it was, lol.)

  7. hey ladies :))
    thank you very very much for the well wishes and the encouragement!! you are the best! your support gives me the energy and the enthusiasm to move forward and do the things i love! it also gives me courage to try :) thank you from the bottom of my heart!

    and merily ... yes baby! GONDOR! the land that was later given by king aragorn to faramir and eowen to rule :) i know my history!

  8. Yay! Glad all our comments made you happy! :D

    lol! You beat me in knowledge. ;) I'm working my way through the series again- I'll admit that it's been a few years since I read it last, so I've forgotten a lot (so shameful for me, who loves Rohan and claims to be a half-elf from Mirkwood, lol!).

    I'm halfway through "The Silmarillion" now- I'm so glad I'm finally reading it even though it's slow going. Now at least I know some of the history and all. :D

  9. Good luck with the new shop. I am loving your pendants and can't wait to see more!

  10. Your clay work is beautiful Luthien - I'm sure your new shop will do well! Off to give it my heart ... x

  11. thank you very much ladies! :)) kiss kiss!!

    merily! good luck on silmarillion :))

  12. How pretty Luthien. These are so unique. Which is very hard to do on etsy. I was thinking of ppening another shop, as well but not sure I want two email addresses to keep up with. I am so glad you are having fun.


thank you so much for taking the time to read and comment on my post :) it makes my day!!
Luthien :)
