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
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 […]
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 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 […]
My tiny take on the world.
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 […]
I’ve been struggling with how to make my website theme more coherent. This isn’t really a surprise since the idea (“hey, your three shops are like the three gunas!”) came to me in a dreamlike state as I half-slept in the backseat on the way to the airport at 5 am. The problem is that […]
Hello, bloglandia – long time no see! I used to have a blog on my gogoshebogo website, but its purpose was never well defined. Originally, it was supposed to promote my jewelry and my Etsy shop, but I quickly found that I couldn’t write about what I was making without explaining why I was making […]
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.- Praise for Gogoshebogo
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.- Praise for Cinter Metal Clay
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!- Praise for FYeah Jewelry
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
