Thank you, Elise Winters!

Finally! A comprehensive website on the origins, techniques and history of polymer clay. Elise Winters, in addition to her fabulous work, has gathered a distinguished group of polymer artists to contribute information and reminisce about polymer clay. A must read for the polymer aficionado and a great source of information for museum curators and gallery owners. Check out the Polymer Art Archive.

So we've had two major snowstorms so far - unusual in Boston because we really don't get that much snow (the ocean effect and all). So, I woke up to this:
I got to work and finished this piece, that kinda goes along with the weather:

Heard about Trunkt? It's a wonderful showcase of independent art and design. I'm honored to have been accepted into the very competitive jewelry category! Other Boston Handmade artists featured on Trunkt include J.Hill Design, Karalee Designs, and Paper Menagerie. is a very selective site and the jury parameters are strict. Even after being accepted, each and every photo uploaded has to be approved before it's published. Since it is not an e-commerce site, design and artistic merit are what counts. None of that monetary for profit stuff getting in the way!
