The handcrafted jewelry is made from recycled magazine paper. I hand roll the paper into individual colorful beads and varnish the beads with an Acrylic water resistant finish. Other features in my jewelry are various gemstones, wire work designs, and soon to come, precious metal clay (PMC) sculpted pieces. For those of you who haven't heard of metal clay, PMC consists of microscopic particles of silver or other metals, suspended in an organic binder to create a pliable material with a consistency similar to modeling clay. When Precious Metal Clay is heated to high temperatures, the binder burns away and the metal particles fuse to form solid precious metal 99.9% pure.
