fiber, jewelry, metals, metal clay, mixed media, paper, polymer clay, pmc, other, I create and specialize in one-of-a-kind art jewelry. Each piece is unique and meticulously executed using quality materials. Sterling and pure fine silver comprise the body of many designs and polymer clay, resin, and seed beaded works have become more prevalent in my recent pieces. Precious and semi-precious gemstones, vintage glass, and lampworked beads add rich embellishment to the bracelets and necklaces I create. Carved bone, found objects, and other non-traditional materials are often added to my designs as accents. I’ve also made cloisonné enamel the focal point of a number of pieces. Sterling and fine silver sheet and silver metal clays ( PMC®, Art Clay Silver™), bronze metal clay (BronzClay™), and copper (CopprClay™) are materials used to hand fabricate many of my beads and charms. Creating one-of-a-kind pieces keeps my work fresh, allowing new ideas to burst forth.
I just found your message on CraftHaus. (I'm not active here.) You have a double wall from a long time ago??? I'd love to see what it looks like. Have you given it a thorough wash lately (lots of warm water, and a bit of soap)?
I’m from an island from the beginning, up in the north of Sweden (Sundsvall is the city and Alnö is the island) and the sea or the ocean has always been important for me, these days I living Gothenburg and it’s a harbour city on the west coast of Sweden… I need the sea horizon and the water line I think, I get a lot of inspiration from beaches findings but also to study images from the deep in the seas or oceans, it has always fascinated me and may be therefore I like when other artist use elements from the sea or oceans. I like your combinations and the colour you use when you make your lovely jewellery.
Good luck with your work and I look forward to see more of them!

H U N G E RWith diet as a way of life for many in our culture, we’ve been taught that one should Eat to Live. We've forgotten that from the 18th through the early 20th century, being fat was a sign of health, prosperity, and an attraction at a time when food was scarce and many went hungry. Hunger, in all its…See More
