(Dallas, Texas USA)
After making wire wrapped and other types of earrings, I branched out and took a clay class. I love wire wrapping but needed to try something new.
I fell in love with the process of thick clay transforming into beautiful jewelry components that look like gold. Somehow through the firing process that takes 8 to 10 hours the clay burns off and you are left with a bronze mini sculpture.
Then after tumbling the piece for 10 or so hours it turns out bright and shiny. I put the piece on a gold filled chain, leather cord or ear wire depending on what it is.
My clients are thrilled with new pieces and I have learned a new craft.
I sell on Etsy and at jewelry shows.
