Artist of the Month - October


Anthea Smith  - Jewellery

“My range of jewellery on show for October is made with the versatile modelling material called polymer clay. It is pliable and remains soft until it is baked in an oven, when it then becomes very strong and retains its shape perfectly. It is a manufactured material, available in vibrant and beautiful colours which can also be mixed together to make even more interesting shades. My passion for jewellery making has spanned 20 years, but in 2011 I had a debilitating stroke which paralysed my right side. However with extensive therapy I learnt to walk and to make jewellery again. During these 20 years I have used many different types of materials, and have been using polymer clay for the last two years. I find it an easy medium to use considering the restrictions I experience as a result of the stroke. I find rolling out the clay and manipulating it in my hands is very relaxing and therapeutic, and I love to spend my days in my studio experimenting with designs and colours, and making jewellery for myself and others to wear. I look forward to sharing my work with you in this showcase.”
