Tammy Maria Settles' Profile

About

I love to sew, and having taught myself it is still an adventure. Making dolls, clothing, accessories, and manipulating cloth in any way is a challenge and a great joy to me. I enjoy making and re-purposing jewelry as well. I'll make anything given the materials.(Warning from personal experience: do not substitute kitchen red pepper flakes when making "woodsy/natural paper mache mixed by hand. If you do, soaking your hands in 2 qts of plain yogurt or sour cream should help...in about 5 or 6 hrs.:-/ )
{ update, May, 2013. Severe nerve damage in my right hand has changed the way I do, well, everything.} As creating feels as if it nearly defines me, I aspire to delve into other areas of hand craft that are new to me, such as digital art.
And so, I begin again.
Thank you to Etsy.
