Title: Hello from Caprizzosa!
Post by: Nafta on April 01, 2011, 09:28:48 AM
Hiya,
I am Natalia alias Caprizzosa and I love Polymer clay...(though I am not very good at it yet)
I started making my own jewellery after the birth of my first son while on maternity leave. I started with simple beads, moving onto crystals, and then to semi-precious stones.
During that time I attended a course in PMC. I loved it but it was a bit pricey at the time so I returned to using semiprecious beads. Then I learnt about lampwork , when by chance I came across Laura Sparling's website and of course the amazing Emma Ralph.
It was actually when I was having a good look around Emma's site that I discovered her amazing clay beads and it is then when I realised that  clay or polymer clay was what I really wanted to do.
I like making and designing my own jewellery but I also like the idea of making my own beads. Polymer clay is very versatile and terribly cheap!.
So there!. Hope I have not bored you, I am afraid I am not very good at writing.
I look forward to chatting with you all!!

Natalia  ;)

Yes it's great to have like minded people to talk to as I bore most of my family and friends to death talking about the various crafts I do or want to try.  ;D

Welcome Natalia!

And no - nothing boring about your posts, quite the opposite. It is great to see your passion for claying - it really is a fantastic medium isnt it, especially for beads and jewellery making.
