                                 Rose Milazzo Mast
Rose Milazzo Mast is an artist who fled from the treacherous land of Pennsylvania in 2011 and retreated to her roots and family in Virginia. She is self-taught, learning from books, online videos and personal experimentation in her dungeon full of beads, clay and metals of many different varieties. Rose started like any who dreams of being an artist… using finger paints and eating paste. As time went by she worked with different crafts which eventually led her to polymer clay in 2001. All her patterned beads are handmade and the pattern is actually made with clay. In 2007, Rose started MastRpieces Unlimited and has made the name a reality. She has expanded into metals and though it has the fire department quite frightened, she has produced beautiful masterpieces. Her creativity is unlimited and she has incorporated antique hardware and keys into work. Rose continues to expand her expertise and to draw inspiration from many, sometimes unusual, sources. She likes art. She’s good at art. So BUY her art!
