Welcome to the new home of the surfingcat blog - about the journey here!

I started my surfingcat polymer clay blog a bit over 2 years ago to share my journey in developing my ability with polymer clay. I first discovered polymer clay 30 years ago when I made a tea set for my dolls, aged 7. Since then it has been a hobby of mine and I have tried out lots of things over the years. When I discovered Flickr a few years ago I discovered that polymer clay had moved on, people were producing fantastically beautiful things from polymer clay and I wanted to be able to do the same. So I set about to learn. I bought some new books, some online tutorials, I experimented and I surfed the web - a lot! I found a whole wealth of information shared on blogs and websites by wonderfully talented and generous people, this inspired me to start a blog and I named it Surfingcat's journey with polymer clay. Surfingcat was an online name I had used before (becuase I like cats and surfing, the real wet riding waves kind as well as the online type).

When I started selling my jewellery I chose the name Cara Jane Contemporary Jewellery, but I kept my blog the same.It all started to get a bit confusing having two online polymer clay presences so I have decided to streamline it a bit and so have moved all the content of my blog to this one.

Please come and follow me here - the content will continue to be the same, only the name has changed.

Thanks for joining me here at
