Meet Gingerbell

This week’s Smoosher is a special treat for me as it’s someone I know outside of the ArtFire Smoosher’s guild. My long time clay buddy and internet friend Ginger – we joined the message boards of around the same time, years ago – of Rosedale, IN is also the talent behind Gingerbell’s Gifts on ArtFire.

There’s a couple items I’m partial to in her shop of course – she uses my canes on a few of them!

One thing Ginger is well known for is her beautiful bead weaving. She often surrounds her handmade polymer clay cabochons with intricate layers of seed bead weaving. This is one of my very favourite:

Outside of her jewelry, Ginger also crafts handmade soaps and candles. I know you’re not supposed to lick them but these look so tasty:

You can follow Ginger’s clay journey on her blog:

  1. Hi Elaine,

    I can vouch for Ginger’s soaps and candles, oh my goodness, they are LOVELY. For some reason, when I wash my hands… I always crave brownies and coffee, though. LOL.

    I am amazed at how long her Palm Wax candles last, too – I’ve been burning the same one every day for about 5 days already! That’s a great value, in my opinion.

    Thanks for featuring Gingerbell! She’s a great person.
