Celie Fago’s Amazing PMC and Polymer Jewelry

The Art of Celie Fagocelie-fago-051_med[1] I stumbled on this artist’s website through an email from one of our vendors, just clicking around and found her exquisite work amid many beautiful artist profiles. I love the combination of colors, textures, and different materials. She uses polymer clay in a way I’ve never seen, carving it like wood or bone, and with intricate details of stroke and design that give a rich and full dimension to her pieces. Additionally, she incorporates unexpected elements such as wires, fiber and glass beads—making some of the most unique bracelets and pendants I’ve ever seen!

Like many artists with a comprehensive vision such as hers, Celie is a self taught artist. She’s been working in different mediums for over 35 years and has exhibited worldwide, including in Japan at the Mitsubishi Material Corporation’s special collections, the company who invented and manufactured Precious Metal Clay in the early ’90s. She has authored a book on keum boo, instructed at different workshops and institutions, and even offers classes at her home studio in Vermont. What a wonder woman! So inspiring.
