Why Polymer Clay Rocks

My Mom gave me a beautiful vintage coffee table with a solid marble top. I was over the moon until I unpacked it and noticed a piece of the wooden frame for the marble had a piece missing.

About a month later, while visiting my Dad in Florida we were shopping for paint for a table he wanted me to refurbish for him. I saw the Premo Sculpey and knew I was saved. I have, of course, made pendants and beads with Sculpey before, but I usually paint it the colors I want rather than using the colored clay.  Just seeing the actual clay in Antique Gold made me think of the table.

I carved, baked and painted.  And…

I’m happy with the color, but think I could have done a better carving job to match the shape of the relief pattern.  What do you think?

I try to reclaim, reuse and re-love items from our past and make them modern again. I see my jewelry as a fusion of old and new, cross cultural, and spanning time periods. Because I use vintage items within my jewelry, there may be age related signs of love that make them special. Each piece will be unique or made in small batches that are similar, but still different. If I find an item I love and it doesn't want to become jewelry, I give it a new home in another art format.
