April 15- April 24

Let me introduce you to Heather Millican of Swoondimples. An amazing artist who strives to offer hope to those who may need encouragement. Heather is a polymer clay expert and her handmade pendants and components will be available at Star’s Beads starting April 15.

From the Artist:

“I am a lover of words and have a grand heart for the ones who feel too deeply, the brave, and those that find beauty in the mundane.

I am an art college graduate and currently live in Florida with my handsome husband, 4 young boys, and boston terrier, Ollie. I am surrounded by dudes.

All of her pendants and beads are made to order from polymer clay. Each piece is formed with polymer clay, handstamped, laden with texture and patina, wet sanded and buffed. “
