About My Hand Made Items.
-------------------------------------

Starting July 2015, I will be merging my other hand made shop to CosasRaras because it is much more manageable for me. All the things I do, paint or craft will be under "Hand made/painted/crafted" section of my shop.


I am a self-taught artist and highly creative person since childhood and I love to experiment and make unique pieces with all kinds of materials.

My first love was Pen and Ink Drawing since my early teen years and later in 1980 I starting working with Clay and with Glass since 1994. I have participated at jury shows and sold to different stores in several states.

My Clay work is mostly hand built and occasionally, I made molds for some pieces. Terracotta clay it is my favorite to work with.

My glass work consist of stained glass, painted glass and some hot formed glass.

Now, I am introducing "Metal Enameling Painting" on Vintage Costume Jewelry. These vintage pieces are transformed in new, vibrant and colorful pieces that are Unique, Resistant and Long Lasting. I used cold and also heat set enamels. All the Vintage Jewelry enameled by me, it is marked at the back with a gold M (Miller).

To care for this Renewed pieces, it is not any different that the care you need to provided for all costume jewelry, vintage or new.
Keeps the pieces separately in small, locking plastic bags that you can buy at any store and are inexpensive. This will prevent the scratching as well of oxidation, patina and fading on your pieces and it is also a great way to keep your costume jewelry organized.
