Etsy Shop : http://IlMareAtelier.etsy.com
Il Mare Atelier designs and creates exquisite jewelry with fine quality gemstones, crafted entirely by hand. My objective is to fuse art and jewelry into unique, versatile, yet wearable and affordable pieces.
“Il Mare” means “the sea” in Italian, with waters shimmering in an array of hues, from the blue of the deep sea to lighter azzurro, pale sea green and brilliant emerald. “Atelier” means “workshop” in French. Put together, they mean “Studio by the Sea”, a lovely intriguing dream that I am working towards.
Art you could hold in your hands. Thank you for your interest in my work.

Hello everyone else who's found the courage to step onto that artistic route which is so very much frowned-upon in our tiny island! :)
I'm Jocelyn, and I'm a fresh graduate with Bachelor of Arts from NUS. While every other peer I have are either landing office jobs or frantically trying to, I have been attracting curious and dubious looks with the "Oh, me? I'm not looking for a job. I'm a miniature sculptress, and am working at making a living out of it.".
I have been working with polymer clay for close to 6 months now (feels much longer though!), mainly in the area of customisations and miniature dollhouse food. I have aspirations of making this become a viable and sustainable source of income, and am slowly venturing in the area of incorporating my miniature sculptures into usable items! :) It's all very exciting, because I've just started my Etsy shop too. My blog/blogshop (AiClay, previously named Play-withclay) has been around for close to a year though, and I've been keeping busy with the orders that generated from there. :)
Alright, it's supposed to be a short description so I wouldn't rant on any further! :) Looking very much forward to knowing all of you better, and one of my aspirations to achieve in the near future is to participate in a local craft fair, which would probably involve a lot of you guys too! :)
