Please join us in Santa Fe, NM for a weekend workshop making patterns in polymer clay. In this two day workshop we will explore ways of creating dramatic patterns using the simplest of techniques.

Online Classes

 

 

 

I’ve created a new 4th online class with CraftArtEdu called ‘Shell Earrings’.

My first 3 classes all use the wonderful mica clay and its properties of illusion. I called these my Mica Magic classes. They include a pendant and pin, a ripple effect necklace with matching earrings and my triangle bangles.

My latest class featuring my Shell Earrings are from my successful Moebius necklace range and you can see some pictures on my website gallery page.

These earrings are simple to make and they work in whatever colour you choose.
