ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Handy since forever (knitting, sewing, scrapbooking, quilling …) I was fascinated by polymer
clay, discovered by chance with one of my sisters during our meetings “DIY family holidays”.
Seeing all its possibilities and unexpected results, I call it a “magic clay”!!
I have more and more fun working with it and improving my technique at workshops.
Combining clay with other media, imitating materials, creating new colors … all that fascinates

I get inspired by everything around me… the seasons, the wishes, the moods…
My greatest pleasure is to see that people enjoy wearing my creations… I had fun creating
