Who is Melanie West? I'm an artist in Maine, and have been working with polymer clay for over six years. My work has been included in five different books, and I've been featured in Ornament Magazine and American Style. The April 2009 issue of Art Jewelry Magazine will include an extensive article I wrote, describing how to cover aluminum cuff blanks (like the ones I sell here on Etsy). I won second place, in the Art Jewelry category, in the National Polymer Clay Guild "Progress and Possibilities 2008" competition.
