Since I first started this polymer clay thingy I've been drawn to the colour yellow. I don't make many yellow items but I use it all the time when mixing hues. There's just some unexplainable draw to it that has me making bananas (weird I know)... My name is Sarah Norton and I'm a bananaholic.
Most of the nanners I make don't get cooked (cause really, how many bananas does one girl need??), only mixed back into a batch of clay. I guess in a bizarre way that means there are bananas in most of the pieces I've sold - I hope no one's allergic. I did cook a handful of em though,
This latest one I made especially for Francesco Zito. When he asked "why did you make me a banana?" I didn't even try to fake a sane answer, what would that even be? I don't know why I do it but upon closer inspection I see I'm not the only banana nut out there. I pulled these ones from etsy. Like the stuff I make they're all handmade from polymer clay. Clicking on them will bring you to their listings

Beat Black is a handmade jewelry (and other stuff) business created by myself, Sarah Norton, and run out of my apartment in downtown Toronto.
I've worked with a variety of different mediums over the years but during these last few its been all about polymer clay. I mostly try to use this blog to showcase the craft in a 'behind the scenes' kind of way. I also like to show off other artists original work that inspires as well as listing any giveaways and discounts.
