What happens when an artist turns to jewelry design? You get the incredibly gorgeous work of Jo Anne of StudioStJames who is based in Farmington, Connecticut. I featured her once before several years ago. She still wows with her beautifully made natured inspired polymer clay cabochons.

Her cabochons are clearly designed for other jewelry makers who need that special centerpiece to wow their overall jewelry design! My favorites are her landscape ones. Some designs are achieved by blending and layering polymer clay and finished with resin. Others are by meticulous image transfer onto polymer clay.

Jo Anne gives an example of how you can combine beadwork with some of her cabochons such as this bead embroidered Nostalgia pendant tutorial shown below by NightOwlStudioJewels. The birds cabochon in this case is from Dorothy Supri of Skyline Beads on Facebook

Jo Anne said :
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.”
Jewelry designs are much easier to store than large art canvases!
