I have been creating jewelry for over 40 years constantly learning, mastering my craft, experimenting with different materials. I have same formal artistic background/education from Poland, that's my native country.
 Around 1982 I discover the Polymer Clay and immediately fall in love with the smooth, soft playable material with endless possibility to shape and sculpture. The way that is so easy to create whatever my heart desire and with no mess around like regular clay will made, and of course so much faster processing to the finish stage.
 To see the details haw I work with Polymer Clay go to my Products Page.        
Every rose is individually created petal by petal with my fingers and become a piece of artistic wearable jewelry. From the very beginning working with the Polymer Clay become more like meditation or therapy for me and to these days is still enjoyable and pleasurable.
 I combine the Polymer Cay with traditional Sterling Silver, Gold Filled findings, Brass frames for cameos, semiprecious stones beads and Freshwater Pearls for necklaces and found objects like wood, rocks, shells for my Art Nouveau creations.
 My recent work and the business were reborn like a Phoenix after the fire in 2015 when I lost my house and my studio, and most of my inventory... Since then, we rebuild the house, regain a lot of new staff but my priority change. I slow dawn and stop working so much to - smell the roses, literally, in my new rose garden on the back yard.
  I feel blessed that something creates by my hands, coming from my heart can bring a little joy to others when they wear it and for that I'm always grateful to my creator.
My philosophy is to make artistic, affordable piece of jewelry, bring smile for the person who wear them and preserve the intricate old style of Victorian and Art Nouveau jewelry with modern materials and technics. 
Every year since 1993 I'm attending some arts and craft shows around New England you can find the list on schedule page. I'm on Etsy.com as Oldfashionedjewelry and Facebook as annaoldfashionedjewelry
