Friday Feature: Colt Pixy

Filigree Egg with Flowers by ColtPixy
Today's Friday Feature is about an amazing polymer clay artist Angelina of ColtPixy on Etsy. Read on to discover more of her outstanding creations...
My name is Angelina Star but people who know me call me Star. Online I am ColtPixy and my shop is at Sculptures and miniatures are my main focus but I do also create other things.
"How did I get started doing my art?" That is like asking, "how did you start breathing". I have been creating since I was big enough to hold a pencil. My mom said I was born to create art. 
I do quite a few other arts, actually. Until an injury forced me to stop working it full time I was a stained glass and mosaic artist. My work was sold in four stores in two states and I taught stained glass mosaics in both Tennessee and Alabama. I still have a fully stocked glass studio even though I work mainly with polymer clays now. 
Love Struck Snail Figurine by ColtPixy
I have collected fairies for many years. A colt-pixy is a mischevious fairy. I took out the - and ColtPixy was born.
At the moment my favorite pieces are snail sculptures. Each has it's own character and personality. See them here:
I currently only sell on Etsy
Handmade Mosaic Keepsake Jewelry Box by ColtPixy is my blog. 
I'm on several social networks here: http://coltpixy.deviantart.com
I also support several different charities but only locally and in person (not online). 
Thank you Star! Please go to her shop and see more of her absolutely enchanting snails and other pieces here:
