About

My foray into polymer clay jewelry has been such a fun and sometimes challenging experience for me. I started out a bead-and-thread girl in my childhood, and along the way I graduated to wire and gemstones. I very much leaned towards the "traditional" materials of jewelry making. Until a couple of years ago, polymer clay was something from my childhood that I used to make lumpy and unattractive sculptures.

I am so thankful I didn't decide to give it up then and there.
