Pam’s first book “Enameling on Metal Clay”, was published in 2007, and she was a contributing author for Metal Clay & Color published in 2012. She has written numerous articles for such magazines as Art Jewelry Magazine, Metal Clay Artist Magazine, Lapidary Journal, Glass-on-Metal, and Step-by-Step Beads.

Pam says “My philosophy can probably best be summed up by Share the Joy. I love working with Art Clay Silver and Enamels, and there’s nothing I enjoy more than sharing my enthusiasm with my students. Fun, I have found, is contagious. In my teaching, articles, and appearances, I have always worked towards making these art forms as accessible as possible to a wide audience. Even while maintaining a high standard of excellence, making beautiful jewelry need not be difficult or expensive.”
Born and raised in Southern California, Pam now resides in Atlanta, Georgia with her husband, daughter, and Porsche the wonder dog.
