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.

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.
