A new year, a new piece of jewelry for me to make…


I started back about 5 or 6 years ago making some jewelry when i had to drop out of school and move down to my dad’s house for a year due to a apt. fire.  While living down there in the south bay, i was going stir crazy.  I could not do sculpture, ceramics, print making, or any other really messy heavy equipment involved arts due to the lack of space.  I started discovering the joys of polymer clay.

I am a true color girl.  I LOVE color.  I like the way they react with one another, i like how they make us feel, i like how, kinda like music, can either make or break a mood.

I began making some jewelry using copper wire (that is sealed so not to tarnish) because i could afford it along with polymer clay.  The degree of complexity one can do with polymer clay is immense (sorta how ceramics is).  It may be a form of plastic and you may be able to cure it in a 220 degree oven, but it does not lack the difficulty i crave.  There are a lot of little things that got improved or adjusted over the years.  The beads are still not totally round, the links are not exactally the same size, etc, but i really think that that is what i LOVE about these pieces.  They are truly one of a kind.  They are TOTALLY hand made.  They are made with true passion and care.  AND they are just cool.

I have decided to post one of my pieces for you to see and see a little of the process.  I hope you like it!  If you do, please let me know and leave a comment.  Thanks everyone!  Happy new year!
