Polymer clay artist: Tina Farthing


One-of-a-kind polymer clay beads are Tina Farthing's specialty!  You can find her beads for sale in her etsy shop Chickibeads.   Tina's finished work, including other materials as well, resides at a separate etsy shop called Chicki.   Enjoy your visit!  Tina writes:


I am a proud stay-at-home mom. I love my children and am very grateful that I get to be at home with them. I have always loved creating, crafting and making an artsy mess! This is what I do when I have free time….which is usually when I can squeeze in a minute here or there. I have been known to work at night when the kids are in bed sound asleep. I also have a very supportive husband who is a great help!!

Several years ago, I dove into the exciting world of polymer clay and have not looked back. I absolutely love working with clay and the versatility clay has. It can mimic many things, makes great jewelry, and is so lightweight! I have recently had my work published in Polymer CafĂ© Magazine in the August 2010 Reader’s Gallery.

My newest interests are of wire work and chainmaille. I have recently started working with wire and metals and find it very enjoyable as well! I love to create free-form pendants of sterling and copper as well as funky and fun earrings!
