Hi everyone my name is Elsie Deliz Fonseca,''La Deliz Chica and All that Craft''.
I live in New York State in a beautiful county called Westchester in the the town of Scarsdale.I live surrounded by lots of trees ,flowers ,birds ,chipmunks and squirrels.I am what you call a city girl stuck in the suburbs.I say that because before moving to the suburbs I was a city girl .I lived 35 years in Manhattan and 13 in the suburbs but you can not take the city girl out of me.
|My favorite place|
I could say that a have accomplished many of the thing I wanted to do in my life.I became a accessory buyer for 14 stores,went to many fashion shows ,visited and worked with many famous designers and now I get to design my own jewelry line.I have a great family and life.
What can I tell that you about myself that you don't know.I could tell that when in my 20's I used to love to go Disco dancing ,Thursday,Friday and Saturday and sometimes Sunday and I had the time of my life.One day I was asked by a famous dancer if I wanted to join his dance company.I said no because I did not know how to dance flamenco,and he answered '' I could teach you'' and you could travel all over the world.I did no accept and glad I did not .
Know do you want to know how I started with polymer clay?I was first introduced to polymer clay by a great lady that goes by the name of Beading Flower.Beading Flowers posted a picture of a mini polymer clay flower that she had made.Then she posted another a picture of a mini, tiny cupcake.I had no idea of what polymer clay was but what Beading Flowers made with it was beautiful.
Two months later I bought some clay did some research but was afraid to use it.Another month passed I bought a toaster oven on sale for $29.99.It took me another week to finally be brave enough to start playing with the clay, guess what I burned my first project a flower but I saved it.It's been 2 years since that day and I love every minute of it.What is my favorite technique ,I don't have a favorite yet because I need to experiment more ,most of my claying is for making beads or pendants for my necklaces ,bracelets and earrings .When I can't find the colors of beads I need ,I make them.I am taking a fondant cake decorating class just to learn to make polymer clay flowers techniques are similar and hopefully I will learn to make polymer flowers.My art and designs inspiration comes from nature ,museums ,street and from Pinterest .My extra question from Tammy Tusher Everly is ''If you could create a polymer clay color,what would it be? Tammie It would a nature inspired green since I am always looking for that perfect shade of green,and I would call it ''that perfect shade of green.My question for Lola is ''What is your favorite polymer clay creation and why?
These are some of my creations made with Polymer Clay.
