Patricia Kimle Designs Ames, IA Fine Silver & Polymer Clay

Patricia Kimle has always been involved in art, from childhood on. Her early interests focused on apparel design and later, jewelry. She holds a Ph.D. in Textiles and Clothing and taught apparel design at the college level for seven years.

Patricia has been exploring polymer clay for nearly 20 years. About 5 years ago, she added metal clay to the mixture to create mixed media jewelry. She sells her jewelry to galleries and gift shops across the country.

She has two lines; a fashion line which combines silver and polymer with a strong nature theme, and an inspirational line which incorporates scripture verses and prayers in the silver.

She uses all original drawings, carved designs, and molds of foliage collected in her own yard in her artwork. Patricia has written over 30 project articles for jewelry craft magazines and general craft publications. She teaches polymer and metal clay at events around the country, including the Bead & Button Show.


Patricia lives on a small "hobby farm" in Ames, Iowa, with her husband and three children, a large garden, sheep, a few chickens and ducks, and a dog. She enjoys cooking and needle arts when not in the studio.
