The whole point about handmade jewelry is making unique jewelry no one else has!  So it is always a delight when I come across a designer who creates the kind of unique supplies for others.  Samantha Burroughs is an Australian polymer clay artist whose shop JessamaDesign is a delight!

Some stellar items include her collection of collar cutters - perfect for statement jewelry pieces.  Shown above is one of Samantha's examples.

She also has a variety of cutters, most in sets of different sizes.

It doesn't take a genius to realize how useful having cutters in graduated sizes can be.  Some of her tutorials feature necklaces which take advantage of different sizes of the same shape!

But my absolute favorites are her texture stamps and her animal image texture stamps - she has lion, leopard, zebra and giraffe heads! Many of her texture stamps are clearly inspired by nature.

How did she get started?  Samantha explained, "My fascination with beads goes way back to when I was only four years old. Once a month or so, my mom would take me to a little beading shop down the road from us. There I would painstakingly spend hours (literally) picking out my little allotment of beads for the month.

Eventually, I outgrew the little beading shop and we began to shop online for my supplies. One day, when I was about twelve years old, the polymer clay section of caught my eye. We added a couple of blocks of Kato clay to the order and the rest, as they say, is history."
