About the Author:

Angela Mabray first happened upon polymer clay in a toy store. While she quickly realized it wasn't just for kids, she still feels a childlike joy each time she finds something new to do with polymer clay. Angela lives with her husband and son in Oklahoma, where she co-founded the Central Oklahoma Polymer Clay Guild. She is also a member of the International Polymer Clay Association. Her polymer clay projects have appeared in Polymer CAFE, on HGTV's That's Clever show, and on many blogs. She writes about polymer clay at craftygoat.com.

Kim Otterbein has had a love for beads all her life and still has a baggie of seed beads from the 1960s. Kim's training as a textile designer and painter seems to blend right in with jewelry making. Kim is the primary teacher for classes and workshops at the Bead House in Bristol, Rhode Island, sharing her wide range of knowledge and experience in beading, knotting, wire wrapping, and polymer clay. She is a certified instructor of Precious Metal Clay (PMC) and also a silversmith. She has had many projects and instructional articles published in various magazines, including Bead & Button, Belle Armoire, Art Jewelry, Beadwork, Polymer CAFE, and Lapidary Journal.
