EmilyClaireCreations, says "Making jewelry makes me supremely happy. It is a one true medium where I can express myself. I follow my bliss. I believe it shows in my designs. Jewelry should be something anyone can wear no matter what size, shape, age or color you are, it is a statement to accentuate your personality.
I enjoy working with semi-precious stones, copper, silver, and glass. Recently I have discovered a passion for polymer clay. I love making my own beads and pendants. I have barely scratched the surface of polymer clay, and I hope to expand into mixed media, using various metals, imagery and found objects.
I am born and raised in the rust belt of Ohio. I come from a declining industrial area, which I believe has colored my influences and attitude. I find beauty in nature and industrial decay. Northeast Ohio boasts of both and it makes for an eclectic and inspirational pallet
Nature inspires me, so I incorporate earth tones, with earthy materials, to create unique pieces."
