Sherri Haab Jewelry Inspirations

My new book “Jewelry Inspirations” was released on March 9.  This book contains everything I love about life and jewelry making.  Projects include resin clay flowers, personalized jewelry with images, etching metal, metal clay, polymer clay, wire and beaded designs.  The book includes stories from my past and thoughts on developing creativity.   Remember Dawn Dolls from the 70′s?  These were my favorite and I kept them after all of these years in pristine condition.  Read the book to find out what they have to do with my designs.

Martha Radio Show-Polymer Clay Ponytails

I was a guest on the Martha Stewart morning radio show yesterday while I was in San Diego (6AM PST).   The topic was back to school and so I described the how-tos over the air for how to make these easy polymer clay ponytail holders.  They are made by simply covering metal upholstery button blanks with a sheet of decorated polymer clay and then attaching a hair elastic to finish.  Complete instructions can be found in my new book, “Clay So Cute”.    First time ever teaching a technique at that early hour!

Clay So Cute

Clay So Cute

My new book, “Clay So Cute” was released today. The book contains projects for tweens and kids but I suspect some adults will find it inspiring too.  My history with polymer clay goes way back, it was my medium of choice for making jewelry and miniatures.  Very few people even knew what it was back then.   It’s been almost 20 years since my sister and I wrote our first book together, titled “The Incredible Clay Book”,  it turned out to be one of the best selling kids crafts books on the market and is still in print today.  It was the book that launched both of our careers.  The “kids” that remember the first book are now in their mid-30s and its a bit weird to hear adults tell me they had the book when they were young-how is that possible?  I am very excited to have a new book in print for a whole new generation of crafty kids.   My favorite projects are the claybots and of course- candy bracelets.
