Embossed and gilded Polyform clay jewelry

Pavelka Design as a business began in 1994 with handmade jewelry made of pieces of press-molded polyform clay, gilded, with drop beads.

The qualities of polyform clay make them lightweight and practically unbreakable, a far cry from porcelain.

These pieces had an antique look rather like ancient seals. These qualities make it a nice medium for large handmade Pavelka Design buttons, too.

People had a hard time deciding on the finishing point of a project first so I started designing the beginning point of a project instead and Pavelka Design sewing patterns were born in 1994.

Of course, now I wish I had not veered from my painting but we can’t go back and take a different path along our own journey. I learned many things with my pattern company and would not be the person I am today without it.
