Featured Guild Studio: BeadsByHaffina

This week's featured studio is "BeadsByHaffina" aka Haffina.

You are just gonna love visiting this studio. Haffina creates beads, buttons, cabochons, pendants, and clasps out of polymer clay. And , let me tell you that they are just fabulous. In what ways are they fabulous you ask? They are fabulous in colors, shapes, textures, and designs. Each piece that she has created is a "masterpiece" in clay.
When visiting this wonderful studio you can easily see that Haffina really loves creating beautiful pieces for making jewelry. It is definitely apparent that she puts a lot of love and effort into her fantastic pieces. She is inspired to design a piece by different things at different times. And, as you can see she is inspired quite often--which is great for all of us!

Haffina is quite an energetic lady. She better be since she is the mother of 5 children. Hey Haffina, how the "hell" do you have the time to create anything with 5 children "on board" the Haffina train?

But, she is not just a "mum" ( she's an Aussie, by golly) and a jewelry designer--Haffina has her fingers dipped into many activities. I will be out of breath by the time I finish telling you about these activites. Here goes...Haffina is the Guild Master of the Artfire Chainmaille Guild, she is a member of the Polymer Smooshers Guild ( oh, you figured that out already--great!), she is also a member of the Cafe Mom Team, and the We LoveArtfire Guild. Not finished yet--she is a columnist for the Craft Techniques Department of handmadenews.org., an aministrator on an online forum - Alundra's Conundrum, a moderator on the Handmade Artists Forum, and a member of BeadingForum dot com dot au. Okay, I am definitely out of breath--thank goodness I am sitting down! Hey Haffina, can you please send some of that energy over here to Staten Island,NY?

I am so impressed by all the different activities you are involved in. Bless you girl!!!
Haffina just loves all that she does--she is , with out a doublt, one lady who loves to be busy. Yea!!!

Come visit this fabulous studio for yourself and see all of the wonderful possibilities when creating with polymer clay.
Btw, custom orders are very welcome here.

If you have any questions for Haffina please contact her through her studio:
