Color addict-love them all! Patterns and textures enhance the fun

My journey with polymer clay began when I was looking for tactile projects to do with elders with Alzheimer's or other physical limitations. Beads were easy and gave a nice result, and could be used to make necklaces, bracelets, & earrings which the maker could wear for positive attention or give as handmade gifts.
Jewelry classes evolved into fund-raising seasonal sales events, with proceeds donated to Alzheimer's Association or to purchase supplies for more jewelry making classes. The classes, held at an assisted living facility, were a pleasant way for residents to get to know one another informally and build community. It also became a way for elders to give back, by selling or giving their creations to friends and neighbors, and donating proceeds to benefit others.
In the process of teaching these classes, I was always looking for techniques and processes that were fun and could be successfully accomplished by folks with various challenges.
I became hooked on experimenting with materials, colors, designs, and so forth, selling many of my pieces and being encouraged to make even more.
Thus my etsy shop, which is a work in progress. In addition to making all the items for sale, I'm learning (slowly!) about photography and marketing online, and welcome your feedback!
