We pride ourselves in the quality of our classes. We have great teachers and a great space, and have a following of students that happily fill our classes. One of the things that makes us extra happy is when someone who is proficient in another medium wants to learn about polymer clay. Ileana Rojas-Bennett is just such a student. Ileana is an amazing silver and goldsmith from Costa Rica (now living in North Carolina). Her Maleku Jewelry line is inspired by the colors of the rain forest and pays homage to the Maleku Indians of Costa Rica, her ancestors. When she was at Creative Journey Studios for a class with Meisha Barbee, she gave Ellen a beautiful example of her work. We wanted to share a picture of this incredible bracelet. We can hardly wait to see how her work evolves as she adds polymer to her repertoire.
You can see her website at www.malekujewelry.com and on Facebook. We are delighted to have Ileana be part of our 'gang' and add to the fun at the Studio.
