Quick Blurb

Polymer Clay and wire are my favorite materials to combine when creating jewelry & trinket boxes. Love to custom mix colors!

Skills and Techniques

I use various polymer clay techniques including mica shift, faux this or that, Skinner Blends, different kinds of cuts, caning, and sculpting. On the wire side I use coiling, wrapping and other techiniques to provide structural integrity and visual interest to my work.

Get to Know

I've been creating jewelry for several years, collecting and combining wire techniques and clay techniques along the way. I've been taught, inspired, and challenged by many fine artists along the way. When it seems "right", I like to collaborate with other artists to push our creativity to new places.

I'm going to skip the usual list of creds for education, training, publishing, showing and all that. Suffice it to say that when it comes to shows and galleries I've been juried in, and screened out. On the competition front I've won some and lost others. I've been published, and rejected. There's nothing unique about any of that!

When I create my pieces I always strive to find a balance between the art and the workmanship. I want to send you something that is beautiful, strong, and long-lasting.
