LaCeramiste Featured Artist this week...

This handmade heart-shaped ceramic pendant is Just one of her creations and was stamped with a fleur-de-lis imprint, glazed in a deep greenish teal, and sponged to show off the stamped design. Some of the natural clay color shows through in spots for an aged look.

Ring Making for dummies

Ok here goes, I have taken on ring making as of late although I have not posted any rings to my Etsy site they sure are popular and not really hard to do (even taught myself). Today I decided to find you a video on the subject to show you the ease of the style similar to what I have been making as of late although there are many variations to create. So watch and learn and happy creating!


See the Video Bar to the left of my blog for videos on jewelry making by Karla Kam
