Far Above Rubies Studios is a collective. A family of women striving to honor God and have fun making pretty things.
Colleen is a painter, quilter and crafter.
Audrey draws very well and is our jewelry maker.
Evelyn works with papier mache.
Lena is our ribbon and paper specialist and expert on all things crafty. She also can draw and color oh so well:)
A note from Evelyn about the papier mache:
The method I employ creates rock hard pieces that can take some abuse. I use mostly love, magic and paper pulp made from newspaper and/or junk mail and/or the occasional egg carton and/or the kids' school work. This is bonded with non-toxic glue(most often Elmers). When dried it's like a chunk o' wood. It is essentially a wood product and can be sanded, drilled and stained. For the more sculptural pieces I use a skeleton of various items ranging from twist ties to paper tubes. I cover that with the pulp or the 'kindergarten-strip-and-glue paper mache' and then the pulp. The pieces are then sanded, painted and sealed with acrylic, enamel or lacquer. It may sound fragile but it's not.
Please don't be afraid of the papier mache:)
love, Ev N. @ FARS

When corresponding one will most likely be hearing from Evelyn:)
