Hi. My name is Ruth Greening, proud owner of Ruth Greening Designs. Welcome to my website, which I hope will give you a good sense of what I do and am available for. Please enjoy.
My dedicated interest is the creation and promotion of wearable art in the form of distinctive and unique jewelry. My specialties are the disciplines of Precious Metal Clay and Wire-wrap. Along with these two, I also employ the crafts of Metalsmithing, Glasswork, Lapidary and Beadwork.
Wire-wrap is the use of gold, silver or copper wire to host and enhance stones or gems in various pieces of jewelry.
Precious Metal Clay, or PMC, is a fairly recent product, which has been available since about 1990. It is an organic, clay-like medium, infused with microscopically ground gold or silver. This material can be molded, sculpted and textured into a desired shape, then fired in a kiln. There, the organic matter is burned off, leaving behind the precious metal creation, with only a small size loss, and ready to be put into the desired jewelry application.
Along with finding great pleasure in my own work, I also thoroughly enjoy teaching others in their creative journeys, and am available for small groups and individuals.
If you are intrigued by the possibilities of your own inner artist, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I would love to help you grow in your creative aspirations.
Again, I hope you enjoy your visit to this site. Take care. Ruth
