metal clay, from powder to custom jewelry
In yogic philosophy, the three qualities of nature are known as the gunas. Everything in the material world is varying parts tamas, rajas and sattva. I've adopted this philosophy to explain what I create.
Three Natures, infinite possibilities
Cinter Metal Clay :: tamas :: inertia, dullness
FYeah Jewelry :: rajas :: energy, change
Gogoshebogo :: sattva :: balance, harmony
Metal clay! I love pottery. I love metal. So is it any wonder that the first time I got to play with metal clay, I thought it was absolute magic? Not at all. But the next step, where I turned all mad scientist in my basement studio/laboratory and created my own brand – Cinter Metal […]
What can I say? I was having a day. To amuse myself, I made a pendant with a naughty word on it. I showed it to a friend, who laughed. I laughed. Then later than evening, my friend called. I think she had just gotten home from work. “I WANT A BRACELET! And I want […]
Gogoshebogo is pronounced just like it looks – go go she bo go! I couldn’t find a real word that summed up the wide range of things I enjoyed making without boxing me in, so I made one up. I didn’t know at the time that my focus would become nature and yoga-inspired jewelry, but […]
Writing for the sake of writing.
Ash was a wild child. Her first owners must have named her Ashley because of her coloring, because it does not suit her personality. She was about eight months old and sixty pounds of pure energy when my ex-husband brought her home to me. I’d seriously wanted a dog. Ash is a great dog, but she’s never been […]
It is more than kinda crazy – it is very crazy – but I signed up to do NaNoWriMo. An acronym I can never figure out how to say, for an task that seems foolish. National Novel Writing Month. Write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November. I haven’t written fiction since my one […]
“How are you today?” Such an innocent question. Such a loaded question. I mainly tried to avoid eye contact as I filled Indigo’s prescription at Costco. The Zip Fizz sample guy was amped up (“Come on! Try some!!) but I made it out of his territory safely. The pharmacist, though – she read the paperwork. […]
Nice words from my customers.
LOVE IT!! HAD THIS COPPER METAL CLAY BEFORE. EXCELLENT SERVICE AND PRODUCT! – Mary- Love It Copper Metal Clay
Fast shipping and nice packaging. The product was very nice. Commercial brands of PMC are often very gritty, but this homemade mix was smooth and easy to work with. I also liked that it was a dry mix so I could prepare enough clay for a piece of jewelry and didn’t have to worry about storage of wet clay. – Miss Molly- Bronze Metal Clay PMC
Cindy is AMAZING. I can’t recommend her highly enough! Her customer service, speed of shipping, and item quality were like nothing I’ve seen anywhere online. If everyone on Etsy were as great as she is, Etsy would be as big as Amazon.- Praise for Gogoshebogo
Three Natures, where I create personalized jewelry and explore the universal themes of body, mind, and spirit. The things we make, the thoughts we think, and how that makes us feel… I make clay, and use that clay to make personalized handwriting jewelry, among other things.
In terms of the physical, I have three Etsy shops: Gogoshebogo, FYeah Jewelry and Cinter Metal Clay.
Thanks for visiting – Cindy Berg
