It's almost a year since I last blogged, and in that time Esme's Buttons has completely changed direction.. We have moved away from polymer clay and taken up metal stamping! Yes, quite a difference!
I was becoming disillusioned with the way that changes in the weather were affecting the clay, and began to doubt its longevity. Introducing the pewter Celtic range last year was the beginning of the end of polymer clay.
Since the start of this year I have been learning and practicing the art of hand stamping on metal. Writing/fonts etc was always an area of huge interest to me when working with clay, and I am now expanding my repertoire with hand stamping affirmation words/quotes and using design stamps. I work mainly with aluminium as it is hypoallergenic and lightweight.
I have been selling my metal range at craft fairs and online for about 5 months now. Please visit the 'product' pages here to see what our new craft is all about!
