New Online Store

I like making and selling jewelry.  Sometimes I have come along a piece of jewelry that I am willing to share, but I did not make this item.  With my etsy account I can only sell items I have made, so now I have found a place where I can share anything I wish to share.  So here is a link to my Square Market place.

Silk Screens and Silk Screening

I have created several afro-centric designs, and I think these designs will work nice with polymer clay silk screening.  I envision that these silk screens can be used to create small pieces of art.  In November I created a pretty unique piece using silk screened polymer clay.  I decided that I would like to create some afro-centric silk screens and use them to create wearable art work. 
 Adinkra Symbol - Strength
This is my first featured design.  It is the African Adinkra symbol of  'strength'.  The silk screen sheets are 4 x 5 inch squares.  Acrylic paints can be used to create the design.  Using typical silk screen process of squeezing the paint through the screen will create the design in paint.  A mixture of different colored clay and paints can yield amazing art. This is just a sample of what I created when playing with clay, paint and silk screens.
In the future I am looking for creative ways to use other Adinkra symbols.

I hope the new year brings prosperity and well wishes to everyone.  mmmm

I have to repair or replace my laptop so that I may really create postings for my blog.

I see myself returning to school to obtain yet another degree in pursuit of the American dream.  With that said blogging  and creating may be come difficult.
