Go to to view and/or purchase handmade jewelry.

This handmade pendant necklace is hand-sculpted in polymer clay. Added to the hand painted heart is a smaller sterling silver heart with the words, “Faith, Hope, Love” engraved on it. The heart is a swirl of purples and greens. It is also painted on the back and signed by the artist. Heart measures: 1 3/8” wide x 1 3/8” long, heat-cured and finished with a coat of acrylic varnish to protect it.

The “Faith, Hope, Love” pendant has been added to a necklace made of silicone rubber that is wrapped in a silkie smooth velvet. It is very soft to the touch and makes the polymer clay heart really stand out. When closed, the necklace measures 7” around. There are two photos that show the velvet necklace from the back. It is very easy to slide the long narrow piece into. Each handmade piece of jewelry will be sent in a small box that comes in a pretty organza drawstring gift bag. Avoid getting polymer clay pendant wet.

DevaArt Studio’s handmade jewelry collection. All jewelry is hand-crafted by artist, Dee Van Houten and each piece is a one-of-a-kind, all created in the USA.

I specialize in freeform, asymmetrical handmade jewelry; not ‘perfectly’ wire wrapped, which I intend for each design. My collection of handmade spiritual and nature-inspired jewelry is created from a variety of materials such as sterling silver components and charms, wire wrapped (wire used is sterling silver, antique silver and/or antique copper) natural crystals (raw and tumbled smooth), genuine sea glass, Swarovski crystals and polymer clay.

Some of my handmade jewelry (necklaces) are adorned with vintage beads, Swarovski rhinestones, crystals, genuine sea glass, other semi-precious gemstones, sterling silver charms such as, dragonflies, butterflies, angels, crosses, flowers and many others inspired by nature. I also design rings and earrings made of the same types of materials.

The polymer clay jewelry is hand-sculpted, heat cured and hand-painted before they are put together with other jewelry findings that go with each particular piece. Every necklace to hang the pendant on is either sterling silver or antique copper.

Prices for my handmade jewelry collections range from $25 up to $145, depending upon what materials are used such as, semi-precious gemstones, sterling silver and crystals. Each piece will come with a name and description so you will know what they are made and designed with.




Alcohol Ink – “My Secret Garden”

Dee Van Houten -
Painting is a pigment of my imagination…
If I can create art, then everything will be good…

Secret Garden: lyrical impressionistic alcohol ink art by Dee Van Houten is a one-of-a-kind original  artwork. As I paint, it seems to be controlled chaos that takes over as it just depends where this wonderful fluid medium takes me. There are a lot of very subtle things going on in the background (dragonflies, butterflies, delicate flowers seem to just appear). In this painting, I used various shades of greens and yellows with touches of orange, purples and aqua.

My alcohol ink paintings are acid-free, highly pigmented, permanent and dry very quickly. This medium is used on non-porous substrates such as glass, tile, plastics, metals and glossy papers and the colors appear to just float on top since this type of substrate does not absorb the ink. Sold unframed. Image size: 9″ x 12″

I spray the finished piece with a clear protective coating that will not disturb the alcohol ink. I then use a thin layer of acrylic UV polymer varnish for a final layer of protection.

This original alcohol ink painting was created at DevaArt Studio.
