Cardoza’s mysterious polymer

Friday’s artist is a bit of a mystery. These segmented polymer clay bracelets by Toni Cardoza are elegant with great cane work. But Toni doesn’t google well.


work is for sale on the Society of Arts and Crafts site and I know that she teaches at the Bead and Wire Shop in Seekonk, Massachusetts. Other than that, I’m clueless. Can anyone fill me in? Thanks to Susan Lomuto for the link.

Another mystery solved

Amy Wasserman ordered replacement scraper blades for her Atlas pasta machine through the importer for $5. She reports that the new ones are made of plastic and seem to work fine. Contact Dawn at if you’re looking for parts.

    Friday morning I debated which clay bracelet to wear to work, the one I made(at the Bead House in Bristol RI), or one of two that I have made by local clay artist Toni Cardoza. Then I went to check PCDaily and was pleased to find her work there. I wear her bracelets frequently and always get compliments on them. I enjoy wearing them as works of art. She is not easy to google. I do think that she has done classes at the Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton, MA. I am glad to see she is offering workshops in nearby Seekonk, MA. I’ll be sure to check that out.
    Cynthia, I love this web site!

      Beautiful creations, I like the orange teal very much. The hunt is one for the talented artist behind this creation. Toni conducted a polymer clay class in Attleboro Arts Museum in MA last year. Any in state reader to volunteer contacting the musuem? I am from out of country, by the way.

          Here’s someething I found on her sale site:

          Toni M. Cardoza

          “ I am a graduate of RISD culinary school. My inspiration to create wearable art came from my experience as a trained chef. Art and edibles begin with a concept and include spontaneous input. Playing with polymer clay has offered me a chance to change paths.”

          interesting how often food and polyclay influence each other!
