    At the dining room table in her Eliza-bethtown home, Tammy Dye operates an Italian pasta machine, turning the handle to produce a thick, doughy blue and red-violet material.

    Unlike the pasta for which the machine was devised, this material is not edible. It’s polymer clay, a form of plastic, which Dye uses to create jewelry and other items.

    “I think I was attracted to polymer clay because it has color,” Dye said.

    The medium has caught her interest to the point she has taken workshops and has taught it to her high school students.
