BOOK : Metal Clay - Beyond the Basics



Prior to metal clay, my interests centered on various art forms such as drawing, painting and quilt making. Art has been a moving factor all my life.

I present metal clay classes and workshops in Nashua, NH in a large airy studio in the Picker Building, one of the historic fabric mill buildings in Nashua’s mill yard. My classes are sought after and fresh. I am always excited and interested in meeting and working with each and every student.

I have numerous articles published on metal clay projects, in Art Jewelry Magazine and Bead & Button Magazine, as well as the book, “Metal Clay Beyond the Basics,” through Kalmbach Publishing.

My work is also featured in these other Artist’s publications.

- 1000 Jewelry Details by Sandra Salamony
- Picture Yourself Creating Metal Clay Jewelry by Tammy Powley
- All That Glitters by Dana Peters (to be released 2010)
