custom jewelry from metal clay

In yogic philosophy, the three qualities of nature are known as the gunas. Everything in the material world is varying parts tamas, rajas and sattva. I've adopted this philosophy to explain what I create.

Three Natures, infinite possibilities

Cinter Metal Clay :: tamas :: inertia, dullness

FYeah Jewelry :: rajas :: energy, change

Gogoshebogo :: sattva :: balance, harmony

Cinter Metal Clay

Metal clay! I love pottery. I love metal. So is it any wonder that the first time I got to play with metal clay, I thought it was absolute magic? Not at all. But the next step, where I turned all mad scientist in my basement studio/laboratory and created my own brand – Cinter Metal […]

FYeah Jewelry

What can I say? I was having a day.  To amuse myself, I made a pendant with a naughty word on it. I showed it to a friend, who laughed. I laughed. Then later than evening, my friend called. I think she had just gotten home from work. “I WANT A BRACELET! And I want […]

Gogoshebogo

Gogoshebogo is pronounced just like it looks – go go she bo go!  I couldn’t find a real word that summed up the wide range of things I enjoyed making without boxing me in, so I made one up. I didn’t know at the time that my focus would become nature and yoga-inspired jewelry, but […]

The problem with words

The problem with words

I have a problem with words. If I don’t write them down, at least occasionally, they start to clog up my brain. I start losing focus. There are too many ideas intersecting and veering down dead-end paths. At least a few of them deserve to travel their intended path and arrive at a destination. Most […]

Worlds collide

As I get busier, I worry more that I’ll accidentally send an FYeah pendant to someone who ordered a sweet little lotus flower charm from gogoshebogo. In a scene befitting George Constanza, Worlds Would Collide in the most unpleasant way. Worlds Collide I never stress about the reverse – that someone who ordered a fuck […]

ashtanga yoga confluence

The Ashtanga Yoga Confluence: I had the extreme good fortune to spend last weekend there. Shri K. Pattabhi Jois, the founder of ashtanga yoga, died in 2009, but his legacy lives on in thousands of devoted students and teachers. Encinitas, California is kind of the mecca of ashtanga in the west, so the confluence is held […]

Nice words from my customers.

    Cindy is AMAZING. I can’t recommend her highly enough! Her customer service, speed of shipping, and item quality were like nothing I’ve seen anywhere online. If everyone on Etsy were as great as she is, Etsy would be as big as Amazon.

    This always arrives in awesome time and simply but efficiently packaged. I believe in experimenting with the work you love so I have tried many other brands of clay. But the quality and ease always brings me back to Cinter.

    Bought this for a friend and she LOVES it. I have bought a few things from FYeah- and all have gone over great! She even made me a couple of custom pieces at no additional charge. Big fan, I follow you on FB and will be back- as always!

Welcome to Three Natures, the new home of my custom jewelry and metal clay ventures: Gogoshebogo, FYeah Jewelry and Cinter Metal Clay. While each line stands on its own, in my mind, they only make sense as three complimentary yet sometimes contradictory natures of reality. Thanks for visiting. xo – Cindy Berg
