I create my original earrings, pins, barrettes, bracelets, and necklaces from FIMO polymer clay, using caning techniques. I blend my own color palette, create simple and complex geometric canes and color gradation canes, as well as some canes inspired by petroglyph designs, and combine these canes to create unique and original jewelry. (Canes are stacks or rolls of different color clays. Designs are created in the cross section of the stack or roll. It's a bit like making sushi, candy, or roll cookies!) I then stretch the canes by hand to reduce them in size, slice, and bake to create the finished piece. I create all of these pieces myself in my small home studio, on a table sandwiched between two floor looms. Two of my pins and a pair of my earrings appear in the color chapter (pg.51) of a book on art principles as applied to polymer clay (Foundations in Polymer Clay Design by Barbara Maguire, Krause Press, 1999.)
