About

Welcome to my Etsy shop. I am an oral and maxillofacial surgeon who loves being creative. I have enjoyed classes at The Guilford Handcraft Center in Connecticut in watercolor painting, graphic design, faux finishing, beading, and sculpture, but (strange as it may seem) I think it is my training in oral surgery that prepared me for the meticulous handiwork required to create my original polymer clay handbags.

I incorporate my own clay canes with those sourced from international artists. After firing, the handbag is glazed three times. Each clutch is made one at a time and takes approximately 8-9 hours to complete. The result is a unique accessory that is vibrant, sophisticated, and durable.
