Description

This second line of jewelry consists of metal stamping, baked polymer clay and resin, wire wrapping, and the addition of various components. Metal stamping gives me the freedom of creating various text and phrases along with a wide range of symbols. The Celtic influence is a natural element in my work as our families immigrated here from the Scottish highlands in the early 1800’s and we are still residing on the original plot of land. The Scottish culture is very prominant in our particular corner of Cape Breton Island and works it’s way into my paintings and jewelry. This line of jewelry is made of aluminum, copper and brass. The polymer clay is often confused with looking like a stone. It is painted with tinted resin or traditional paint and clear resin. I have recently begun adding local beach glass found on our shores to resin for a beautiful effect.
