Friday Feature & GIVEAWAY: Flower Land Shop

Happy Friday, everyone!  It's time for a Friday Feature with Giveaway, so I hope you're all ready to meet Sara of Flower Land Shop in the lovely Italy (a place I'd love to visit one day).  Sara's shop is full of whimsical polymer clay jewelry, each hand-sculpted and hand-painted with lots of care and attention to detail.  There are lots of great finds for animal lovers too.  =0) 
Please remember that all images are clickable. 




I asked Sara how she came up with her shop name.  This was her answer:
When I opened the shop I made floral jewelry with Swarovki crystals, so, I wanted to give the name “FlowerLand”.  After, I chose to make animals because I love them and they inspire me but I didn't want to change the name, it is romantic and I think that ideas can bloom like the flowers.
The subtitle “by Sara Max” is the union of my name with my boyfriend name (Massimo), he's my biggest supporter and adviser, and I wanted to thank him putting his name in the shop title.




How did Sara start making polymer clay pieces?  Here is what she said:
I discovered polymer clay on the web and I falled in love with it. When I was a child I loved to make jewelry with glass beads and threads, but techniques I used were limiting for me, I love to sculpt and to paint . Polymer clay allows me to unite jewelry making, sculpting and painting. Initially I made jewelry for myself, was 2007.



Something she wants readers to know about her work:
I'd like they to know I love my work, I spend hours and hours designing my pieces, making them and improving packaging. I'm very happy when people request custom items because I'll [know I'm] going to make something unique and special. I'd like to make people happy and I hope I do it!

What is her favorite thing to do in the summer?  She said:
To go to the beach!

I asked if she has a favorite color palette to use for the summer season.  She replied:
After classic animal colors (grey,brown etc) I'll use turquoise, neon colors, pink, white,mint green.
