Hi there!

I'm Eni Oken, artist and author of hundreds of articles, tutorials and books in print and online. For over 30 years I've explored art, color theory, fantasy and ornamental design.

About JewelryLessons.com and ClayLessons.com

After 8 years serving the jewelry making and polymer clay communities with lessons which helped shape tens of thousands of new artists, JewelryLessons.com and Claylessons.com websites shut down their virtual doors. 

The close was announced in April 2016. Sales ended on May 31, 2016 and the sites remained opened until early July 2016 to allow members to make their final downloads. 

As announced extensively, files CANNOT be restored after the close.

You might be interested to know that after an arduous battle with cancer, I am again finally able to channel my artistic abilities to explore many different facets of art and design -- more than jewelry-making -- through "The Creative World of Eni Oken" website at enioken.com.  There you can continue to follow my artistic discoveries through blog posts, art, tutorials and ebooks. I invite you to come visit and see what I'm up to.

Special Thanks

I would like to thank everyone who was involved in this project; the people who signed up and participated through discussions and postings, also the technical support and development programmers, many counselors and advisors, and especially the fabulous teachers who provided beautiful projects and lessons. It was a wonderful journey, full of excitement and discovery.

Among the many people who helped shape this project, I would like to thank most especially Tatiane Santos, always the wind beneath my wings; Brian Oken, the wise voice of guidance; and most importantly Daniela Almeida, a wonderful friend and the co-administrator of both sites, who practically saved my life during the time I was ill, carrying the management of the site like a real champ. I am forever in your debt!
