Art through the generations

♥ Hi, I'm Judy and I create whimsical, unique creations in my home studio in North Carolina. My love of arts and crafts began when I was a little girl. My family was always working on handmade projects, and I was always excited to learn something new. I have warm and happy memories of time together being creative and having fun. My two older cousins taught "art classes" to their little sister and me. My mother taught me many wonderful things like knitting and painting. Most of all, she taught me the joy of making handmade gifts and seeing people's faces light up with delight.
♥ As an adult, I bounced from one craft to another, always searching for that special medium I could feel passionate about. Then one day in 1997 a friend's 6-year-old daughter was wearing a colorful necklace made of chunky beads with vibrant patterns. When I admired it, I was amazed to learn she'd made it at school out of polymer clay. I started working with it and have been fascinated with its endless possibilities ever since!
♥ Even though my mom has passed away, I still carry on my family tradition of the love of handmade by making clay projects with my grandchildren. I love watching their imaginations at work, and we have a great time together making memories. ♥ A Favorite Quote: “You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.” —Kahlil Gibran
♥ ♥ ♥ July 2020: Exciting news! I have published a BOOK on Amazon Kindle - also available as a paperback! The book tells the story of my faith journey from Judaism to Catholicism and discovery of a loving God. Title: "The Pine Tree: Meditations, Prayers & Stories of God's Grace" by Judy Tanner-Basiewicz

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

♥ HANDMADE POLYMER CLAY creations will last for many years with gentle care. While not as fragile as glass, clay can break or chip - avoid dropping on hard surfaces and protect from sharp objects which might damage the finish.
-When traveling with jewelry or storing ornaments, pack in bubble wrap or soft towel. Don't stack anything heavy on top of clay items.
-Store in a dry, cool place away from direct sun.
-Clean with mild soap and water, dry with a soft towel.
-Colorful clay pieces can be mistaken for “doggie treats” or "cookies." Keep out of reach of PETS and SMALL CHILDREN.
♥ Follow these simple care tips and enjoy!
