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.
