Last Saturday I visited Liz Hall of Lizards Jewelry at her and her husband’s home studio during the Loudoun County Artists’ Studio Tour. I follow Liz’ work on Facebook, and the colors are eye candy – in her photos as well as in person.
I was going to bug Liz about her creative process, history as an artist, and any fabrication challenges that her materials of choice (polymer clay and metal clay) present, but once at the studio I totally chickened out. Liz was OK with me taking some photos though.

I especially dig the pieces incorporating metal clay. To me, the juxtaposition of squiggles and geometric color layouts evokes funky sea creatures, fuzzy and odd and fun (inspires me to explore creating textures in metalworking).
Although real life octopi eek me out, I love the organic feel the tentacles add to this pendant.
