Morro Rock, Morro Bay, California - Custom Design

Landscapes have always inspired artists.  But miniature landscapes are definitely more challenging.  Artist Jo Anne St James of StudioStJames manages to capture those on her polymer clay beads and pendants.  Wonderful seascapes, desertscapes and shore scenes are her favorite artistic expressions.

Just like many artisans, Jo Anne's creative path meandered through different media before arriving at her polymer clay passion. She explained, "Art has been my life's focus and a necessary outlet for my creativity. From interior design to oil and acrylic painting, sculptures, paper crafts and clay, I have done it all. Moving into jewelry design was simply another step into what I like to call my “artistic evolution.”

Her one of a kind designs are created with the layering and blending of many clay colors before she arrives at her desired compositions.  She sometimes uses actual landscape photos or pictures as inspiration.  The results are simply divine works of art!
