This photo is of a covered CD made into a suncatcher. I titled it Sunshine and Rainbows. Two of my favorite things :) It is my most popular picture posted on my flickr photostream. It has had 2880 views and is marked as a favorite by 60 people.
I have been told my art is so colorful and bright it just makes you happy to look at it. I hope it so. It makes me happy to create it.

I’ve been working with polymer clay for the last 6 years, developing techniques as I go, reading & researching new ideas. I find pleasure in the process, when I work with clay it soothes me, both heart & soul, it’s a healing form of art. I’ve always liked making things and working with my hands. I’m inspired each day by the beauty of nature, & its stunning array of colors & textures.I studied Interior Design at the Ringling School of Art & Design in Sarasota,Florida. I have an extensive background in acrylic & watercolor painting, stained glass, mosaics & Faux wall painting/stenciling. I am also an avid crocheter,knitter,(have to keep my hands busy!)seamstress & quilter.I hope this gives you an insight into who I am. Creating art is like breathing to me, I live to do it, and POLYMER CLAY is my obsession!
Here a just a few of her wonderful works of polymer clay art. You can find her on etsy at BeadazzleMe. I hope you enjoy her beautiful jewelry as much as I do.

The only rules are that the entry must be at least 50% polymer clay and must interpret or depict the theme in some way.
Please vote for your top three favorites in the pull-down voting box shown at the bottom of this page. Depending on the speed of your internet connection, it may take a few moments to appear.
