Jewel Lewis - Christchurch - New Zealand

Jewel is well known amongst the Teddy Bear and Doll enthusiasts and foremost in the field of miniatures.
Did you know that she was first published in a FIMO how to booklet way back in 1985? - Thats right we have a pioneer of our own and she's here in our back-yard. If you can ever get hold of a copy of that booklet she created millefiori flowers in blue and yellow. I have a copy here and its a pleasure just knowing she wrote the article.
These days Jewel creates wonderful mini's - first by sculpting an original from polymer clay, then she makes a mould of her work and pours resin items to sell. They are painstakingly small and every time I see her doing that work I'm even more impressed. Contact Jewel directly by email at lewberry@xtra.co.nz
