Creating with Photopolymer Plates and Moulds IS FUN!!

Love when I have a vision of something and it comes out the way I imagined it! Am thinking I need to add some gold to make the bird stand out more. I'm gonna make a series of these.

Obsessed with Photopolymer Plates!!


Just cant stop making these babies!! They are so beautiful and so easy to make. I think tonight I will be dreaming about what I can create with them!! I have some for sale on etsy -- see the link to my etsy shop in the right column.

The orangy stuff in the picture is a childhood favorite; silly putty. Its a great way to see how the plates will read in PMC before making a commitment in metal clay.

Rings ...Rings and More Rings

These beauties were just finished tonight by seven wonderful and fun students. Bet they will proudly show them off tomorrow...and the next day.

On a Wing and A Prayer


Lately I have been trying to help a friend find a job and a car. I am reminded that we do not have to do this on our own that the Good Lord Above has us in his care and he is watching over us. This piece gives me peace knowing He will take care of her -- all we need to do is reach out an pray!!

Putting it All Together


I have so many fun silver beads and charms I have created waiting to be "hooked up" with other pieces. Last night I was inspired to string and knot them with leather cord paired with my all time favorite stone; turquoise. Love the way it feels on my wrist.

Mermaid Bracelet and Clasp

I wire wrapped these beads and pearls on the way to Point Reyes one weekend. It originally had a manufactured toggle clasp. The pearls and the colors reminded me of the away I went in my studio and made this mermaid clasp to finish it off. When I wear it I want to be somewhere on the seashore.
