Gayle Martens creates jewelry pieces that are simple in design yet contemporary. Her designs say "less is more."

While Having no formal training in jewelry making when she began in 2008, her life experiences, travel, reading and research all led to Gayle evolving into the artist she is today. In 2013, Gayle received her Art Clay Level One Certification from Art Clay World USA. 2014 brought the completion of the Art Clay Senior Certification course work.

For Gayle, jewelry making is yoga for her mind. She finds great relaxation and focus from being in her studio. Her goal is to bring this joy and feeling of accomplishment to others through metal clay class instruction.

Artist Philosophy: 

"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up." - Pablo Picasso

"Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time." - Thomas Merton, No Man is an Island

Life is about taking risks, some small, some large. Creating art and finding that child within again, is a risk. But once that inner child is rediscovered, a whole new life is opened up to be explored. That new life, in the creation of art, brings personal growth,inner healing, serenity, inner piece, joy and much happiness!
