    Kelly’s work is amazing…just amazing! I saw her at a bead show and embarrassed myself by standing there drooling over her pieces. My husband finally had to pull me away.

      Kelly’s work is really so wonderful. I find her work to be both elegant and playful, which is an unusual balance. She’s a great addition to the world of blogging, generously sharing her mixed-media explorations.

        I had long admired Kelly’s work before I saw it IRL at Synergy last year where my reaction was much like Doreen’s….only I didn’t have a husband there to pull me away from my drooling :). Beautiful stuff, her work…pictures don’t do it justice!

          I saw Kelly’s works at Bead&Buttons a few years back and kept going back to her booth, drooling all over her works. Not to mention about her pink hair color. She is fun to be around.

            Kelly I wasn’t able to leave a comment on your blog? Not sure why.
            But anyway, I love your work, it fancinates me. When I grow up I what to do that.

                Kelly, your work really is terrific. I’m a big admirer of folks like you, who are willing to stretch themselves into new places. PMC and pc are a perfect match, for those willing to travel that road. Brava Kelly! Please don’t stop exploring!

                    Kelly, I had been searching every stores and websites for a double sided polyer clay cabochon that was designed by you in Lisa Kan’s book Bead Romantique. The name of the cabochon is a double sided maiden, and its size is 33x50mm. Can you please tell me how I buy this cabochon. Thanks.

                      Hi Edith,
                      You can go to my blog and write a note to me telling me what you would like to have made. I do more than the lady in Lisa’s book. I did a blog spot on some in Oct with photos that you can blow up to look at and I still have some left. Hope to talk to you soon, Kelly
