 Kelly Russell has been working in polymer clay for 18 years and has been beading on and off for the last 10. She likes to combine many different media in her work and was introduced to PMC in 2005. She had the good fortune to study with Celie Fago who told her to stop working in whatever other media she was working in and concentrate on metal clay. Images of her work were circulated to other PMC artists including Tim McCrieght.  Her work was noticed by the Mitsubishi Corporation and one of her necklaces was included in their collection for an 8 month tour of Japan. She was included in the first PMC conference invitational show and has had several articles published in Art Jewelry Magazine, Bead Unique, and Beadwork and is currently working on a book for Bead and Button. Her workPMC and Polymer has also been included in several books and she teaches across the country and sells her work at shows across the country.  To see more of her work, visit her website at
