Featured Designer: Indian Creek Studios

I just came across this week's designer through another blog and fell in love with her earthy stoneware pieces that have such personality!

Pam, of Indian Creek Studios, has a love for making things with her hands, especially beads with texture. She describes her favorites as earthy, gritty, roll around in the mud beads. Her blog header reads, "Indian Creek Studios: ceramic beads and charms with organic and timeless style".

Pam uses porcelain and stoneware to make them and fires them in a kiln in her backyard. HOW FUN!! I wish she was my neighbor!!

I have thoroughly enjoyed all the information and photos Pam shares on her blog about this art form.

I have always been interested in working in this medium, but have never taken the leap. It's great to get an insider look to see all of the work that goes into it.

Indian Creek Studios has a number of beads, pendants and charms currently listed in its etsy shop. A few of my favorites are shown here. I know you will enjoy them as much as I did!!

Have a great weekend!! (Thank you Pam!!)
