I create a selection of necklaces, earrings and bracelets made of polymer clay. I like working with this material because it is versatile, colorful, and gratifying. It lends itself to a variety to techniques that can look very different — bold or delicate depending on the size, shape and texture. Because I have experience as a painter, I enjoying mixing the clay to create colors and shapes depending on the project. Then I bake the jewelry in an oven at a low temperature. Once it has cooled I sand the piece and either buff the surface or apply resin. The result is a piece of jewelry that is unique, comfortable to wear, and affordable.

Artist Bio

I grew up in Portland Maine. I received a degree in Fashion Merchandising and moved to Dallas Texas where I was a buyer for several years. I got married, moved to San Francisco and was a buyer for a few more years until I went to school at UC Berkeley. I received a double major in French 19th culture and the practice of art. I rented a studio at the Point and was a painter until a few years ago when I began making metal jewelry. Somehow along the line I became interested in polymer clay and have been exploring its many possibilities ever since.
