Beth Terhaar of Danbury, CT and Jensen Beach, FL was raised in a home with an artistic mother who encouraged creativity in her children. During Beth’s 25 year tenure as a school teacher, she did floral arranging, made boiled wool purses and painted glass. She and a friend would turn her house into an annual two-day holiday boutique that drew 500+ customers. The boutique included themselves along with 20 other artists. As Beth retired from teaching she was introduced to polymer clay by her sister, a prominent pottery artist. That’s where Beth really settled into her niche of polymer clay jewelry artistry. She loves the endless possibilities of colors, textures and shapes that this medium offers her. While participating in art shows throughout Florida and Connecticut, Beth is often sought out to combine her talents of teaching and polymer clay jewelry making and teaches private classes to others.
