I make metal clay jewelry, and really like Mermaids :-)

So what the heck is metal clay? It is pulverized metal mixed with natural binders which is then used as you would clay. It is fired in a high temperature kiln burning off the binders and leaving solid metal (I work in .999 fine silver, copper and bronze primarily). Unlike cast jewelry, the metal in metal clay never fully melts, but "sinters" together.. sort of like a hard packed snow-ball of metal powder if you will. This allows metal work without specialized casting equipment, and without the mold making process.
All of my jewelry is hand made.. if I ever go missing, they can pull my prints from my work - not really, but theoretically ;) . I do make press molds of my work, so that I can reproduce them with some consistency, but even the "sister" mermaids are a little different, since press molds do not release cleanly.

    Well... I live in NJ with my hubby and my 2 sweet puppy "children" Tipper and Jackson. I like to dabble in jewelry making, most recently using various different kinds of metal clay. I tend to post my work sporadically but I hope you like what I do!

I've been playing with clay and polymer clay for many years, and finally decided to set up shop. I mostly make mermaids, but will occasionally through other subjects into the mix. Hope you like my stuff!

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
Please note that my pieces are very small, and while polymer clay is fairly resilient, they CAN BREAK and should be handled with care.
Refunds will be dependent on circumstances, but I will refund upon return of the item in most cases. I will not replace items without receiving the damaged item first.
Paypal only. No you can't send me cash. No you can't send me a personal check. MAYBE you can send me a money order, but really... set up a paypal account.
USPS. Rate will be based on weight (most things are very light) and your zip code.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you would like a custom piece, I will do my best to comply. Let me know what you are looking for, and I'll see what I can do!
