Edie's Bio:

Edie's art background...
- Stick figure drawing (almost didn't pass)
- Coloring inside the lines (didn't pass)

If it counts, Edie came to polymer clay from a background of classical piano, and she earned three degrees that have nothing remotely to do with what she does for a living. She still doesn't know what she wants to be when she grows up. Perhaps she should figure that out. She came to the NTPCG in November 2004 as an absolute beginner and made Nancy's Lotzer's swirley bowl there, to her utter delight. Someone also introduced her to the natasha bead at that meeting, and she's been bonkers ever since.

The last few years have been “I want to get back to my clay” years for Edie, experiencing some life stumbles, but still coming to meetings and workshops. She says she is more about process than product.

She made her “free spiral beads” color circle necklace in 2007, working out a process of keeping holes for stringing in the curved beads and making “joint beads” to keep the movement smooth and cover the ends of the squiggly beads.

When she saw Ford and Forlano’s “squiggle necklaces” this year, she loved them, and has made her variation using their white-grey-black colors.

Edie will demonstrate her variation of the "sqiggly necklace".
