Description: Check out these three beautiful art clay necklace pieces~ I love metal clay work!


I began making jewelry in the early 1990's.

I had signed up for a jewelrymaking class at a nearby art school, but the class didn't make and was cancelled. I was so disappointed!

Shortly thereafter I went to The Nature Store and bought a kit with natural stone chip beads and some cheap findings and taught myself how to construct components to make jewelry.

Later I moved on to some more sophistocated pieces, and a few years ago I completed training that certifies me to teach Art Clay Silver jewelrymaking.

Currently I am doing a lot of work with free-form darkened annealed wire (too much fun!) and earthen clay beads that I hand-form in my studio.

Now I'm moving up to using porcelain clay (even more fun!!!). I am an artist and writer by profession and work in a variety of mediums.

Jewelrymaking is a keeper and one of the most fun and rewarding mediums in which I work.

Hey, it's definitely cheaper than therapy, right?

EDIT: The first photo I posted turned out way too small to see any detail, so I'm posting these close-up pictures.

I submitted my up-close photos under another post since I didn't see how I could add them to this one ... and I haven't heard back yet that it's been posted. Maybe they will be up by tomorrow ... hopefully! Thanks for your patience. I have more patience with making jewelry than I have with posting photos!!! ;-O

This is too weird GingerLou, I got 4 emails with a notice you responded to my comment but none of the close ups you posted. Everyone of the addys were the same, http://www.how-to-make-jewelry.com/metal-clay-jewelry-gingerlous-jewelry-journey-so-far-.html#comments

Try it again and change the subject line, maybe then I will get the correct message.

Thank you for your encouragement to post better photos. I was thinking the same thing as you once I saw the photo. I have now submitted two more photos which shows two of the necklaces close-up so that you can see more details. gLou

The pictures are too small I can't see any of the detail on your PMC pieces. Can you send a larger file?
