International Polymer Clay Association Awards for 2017
I was extremely happy that both the pieces I entered into 2017's Emerging Artist categories won awards. My Hang Gliding Lizard, titled 'One Small Step....One Giant Leap', won the Member's Choice for best Non Functional Sculpture and Hanging Art, and my 'Earth Flower Bowl' won both the Judges and the Member's Choice for best Functional Container.
Between 2010 and 2012, I wrote several magazine articles, one for a bead design, and the others for Polymer Clay designs. I had great fun writing these, and having to do concise, step by step instructions, stood me in good stead for my later tutorials.
These are some of the articles I had published:
Four in One Necklace, Bead Magazine,
Neon Pendant, Fine Silver Magazine,
Floral Focal Bead, Bead Magazine,
Daisy Beads, Bead & Button Magazine,
Autumn Leaves, Bead Magazine,
Poinsettia Beads, Bead Magazine
Humbug Beads, Bead Magazine,
Linen Stripe Pendant, Bead Magazine.
As of December 2013, my Poinsettia Bead tutorial is available free, online, from Bead Me Magazine. My Tutorial is in Issue 4, page 10/11. Follow the link to see:
