Cute sells.  Why?  Such things are endearing and bring smiles to our faces.  One polymer clay artisan who makes kawaii (Japanese for cute) charms is Kim Rountree of Oborocharms (link no longer works).  Another reason why I find them so adorable is they are perfect for holiday and other themes.

Kim offers her creations as charms for cell phones, key chains, buttons, rings, bracelets and necklaces.  As you can see from my picks her designs are geared for Halloween, back to school, Christmas, a social media maven and even a fun poison apple charm for a teacher!

Kim has also generously shared some wonderful tutorials over on Deviantart - she is known as  Oborochann there.  So if you fancy making some kawaii polymer charms of your own, head on over!  You need to click on the tutorial to zoom in. Cowabunga!
