About Me

My photo
As a Mixed Media artist, fear of venturing down creative avenues, not taken by many, is an everyday journey for me. Finding and being inspired by people, music, and the positive flow of energy makes it way into a unique edginess for designing gift basket creations and handcrafted artisan jewelry. When I’m asked what inspires me, I feel that "I am a visionary artist inspired by community, diversity, tradition, culture, excitement and positive energy. Imagination gives me the license to break boundaries."

Polymer Clay - Faux Bone Bracelet

Learning the technique to make this Faux bracelet was well worth the experience.  This technique entailed learning how to blend colors to give it a bone look, using rubber stamps to provide the indentations for that tribal feel.  Using acrylic paint as a wash and finishing off with some sanding and buffing.

Here is the end result:

Polymer Clay - Red & White

I love when people make special requests.  A friend of mine wanted a special piece of jewelry for the Memorial day holiday.  Her church had requested everyone to wear red, white and blue.  She had decided what outfit she was going to wear and wanted a red & white neclace and bracelet.

This is what I created for her using polymer clay red glitter and white.

Polymer Clay - Cuff Bracelet Repaired

I always love a challenge.  A good friend of mine had a silver cuff bracelet that had lost quite a few stones.  She gave it to me to see if I could somehow replace the missing stone with polymer clay. 

I studied the large stone that was in place to pick up some of the colors for the smaller polymer clay stones.  I glued them in by using E-6000 glue.  So tell me what you think!

 Notice 5 stones that are missing.
