    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.
