We are husband and wife, Bob and Arlene Carey, known as "ArzArt". Over the years, we have explored multiple disciplines including music, fine art photography, hand-painted holiday ornaments and decorations, mixed media, and polymer clay jewelry. In all of our disciplines, we embrace the use of vibrant color as well as geometric, free form and abstract images.
For our clay jewelry, we first blend various clay colors together to create our unique color mixes. We then shape the mixes into beads of different sizes and shapes, fire them in a clay oven, and hand polish each piece. Next, we combine our handmade beads with other beads and crystals in creating our original jewelry designs. Our earring wires are nickel free gold-plate or silver-plate over surgical steel.
Although our beads are similar in color, each piece is unique and individual, ensuring that your purchase is a truly one-of-a-kind piece of wearable art! Since each clay creation is individually made, patterns on each piece will vary slightly, but the color mix will be consistent. Please note that colors may vary slightly, depending upon computer monitor.
We have participated in various Fine Art and Arts & Crafts Shows throughout the Southeast U.S., including the Cape Coral Art Festival; Las Olas Art Festival; Roser Park Art Festival; Christmas Made in the South in Macon Georgia; The Calico Arts and Crafts Show in Moultrie, Georgia; Cottontails Festival in Birmingham, Al; SouthWoodstock Music and Art Festival in Tallahassee, Florida; Springtime Tallahassee, Shop the Rocky Top Fall Craft Show, Dollywood Harvest Festival, and many others. Our work has also been exhibited in various galleries and venues including the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery and the Arts for Act Gallery in Ft. Myers, Florida, the 1020 Gallery in Tallahassee, Florida and the Georgia Visitors' Center on Interstate 75 near Valdosta, Georgia.
