About Me

Klimt Necklace by Ann Dillon

Klimt Necklace by Ann Dillo

I come from a long line of artisans and magpies. Design, color, and texture have always been major components of my life in one form or another. I grew up in my parents’ freelance home furnishings design studio. I majored in Fine Arts at UNH. I’ve always had to create something. For a long time, that took the form of weaving—mostly one-of-a-kind wearables.

Since 1993, I’ve been working with polymer clay, making mainly beads and jewelry. A few years back, smaller beads began to nudge at me and want to be part of the mix. Each piece I create is unique, and I’m constantly learning and incorporating new techniques and inspirations into my work.

My work has been featured in the following publications:

  • The Art of Polymer Clay: Millefiori Techniques, by Donna Kato
  • Polymer Clay: Creative Traditions, by Judy Belcher
  • Soutache and Bead Embroidery, by Amée Sweet-McNamara
  • Wire Jewelry; Crocheted, knitted, twisted & beaded, by Chrissie Day

My affiliations include:

My pieces are available at many LNHC shops, including:
