Polymer Clay and Mixed Media
I make stuff.  Some art, some craft.  I also love to teach, in print or in person. I've been working with polymer clay since 1995 and I'm still discovering new ways to use it.  The vintage buttons, postage stamp and game pieces items I've hoarded collected is starting to reach critical mass, so I'll be posting finished mixed media projects soon.


Teaching
I travel across the country conducting polymer clay workshops, and my favorite local venue is KanduBeads in Cheshire, CT.  Here are my fall 2015 classes:

In this fast-paced class, learn how to create this original "airbrushed suede" effect pendant.  Master several techniques on the way to making an eye-catching piece.  This class is almost full, so sign up soon!













Polymer Amulet Box Pendant

These polymer amulet boxes are sure to impress.  They make great gifts and a perfect place to store your healing crystals or whatever you hold dear close to your heart.  This class was popular at the international Bead&Button conference, and I'm pleased to bring it to KanduBeads.
