Bought as a gift for my mom and she loved them. She complimented the quality and uniqueness. Only issue was seller didn't ship on date mentioned at time of order and item was late for Christmas.

I bought this as a Christmas gift, but when it arrived, I wished it was for me. I love it! I'm sure my friend will too.

About

Handmade Artisan Jewelry, Featuring Beads and Pendants of Polymer Clay

Hi there, my names Barb and I've been an artist for many years, in fact it's how I've made my living since about 1968. I've worked in many different mediums and have always enjoyed the challenge of custom work. I've worked for several different Glass Companies over the years as a glass artist. Many special, custom, pieces of my artwork on glass have been sent to countries all over the world. I've always been successful in my artistic pursuits because of my love for art and a "I Know I Can Do This, Attitude!". These days I still work part time for Mosser Glass, of Cambridge OH, at their WV facility, Variety Glass. About four years ago I started working with polymer clay and making jewelry, a perfect combination! I love working with the clay, as there are endless possibilities. I have many beads that I combine with the clay to make some very unique pieces of jewelry. I also love to hunt for gently used jewelry and beads to add interesting touches. I hand-paint some of the pendants which adds another dimension to my jewelry. As with any art, the artist is always changing and visualizing many new ideas and I really love the art of jewelry making! I guess my style would be eclectic, just like I am ! I have a nice studio that over looks a beautiful Koi pond, which is really relaxing and a constant source of inspiration. A loving partner Ron and our little dog Dollar completes the mix. We also have an indoor pond that houses three Eastern Painted turtles and a few smaller Koi. I hope you enjoy browsing through my jewelry, most of which are one- of- a- kind pieces. Please don't hesitate to contact me with a question or request, I'd love to hear from you.

Welcome to my Etsy shop, take time and enjoy looking at my unique and original jewelry creations. I love creating polymer clay beads and focal pieces and mixing them with other materials. I find the possibilities are endless! I've been an artist for many years so I hand-paint some of my pieces. I create each piece with attention to detail, and use only quality materials. Many of my pieces are one-of-a-kind and the ones I make from polymer clay or hand-paint are all signed. You can be assured you will receive a well made and unique piece. I pack all my pieces in nice jewelry boxes, suitable for giving. If possible I'd like to know how you like your purchase, so please, leave feedback. Thanks, Barb
