About Me

At the stores on my b-day. That's a head-loop.

At the stores on my b-day.
That’s a head-loop.


My name is Delia Marsellos-Traister, Owner and Chief Creator of Phoenix Magyk.  I create Resonant Jewelry art in fine silver and I teach metal clay arts.

Here’s a little background

A bunch of things have happened – mostly on purpose – you know, I was born; grew up; spent time in assorted educational institutions; had jobs – some I thought might be careers . . . and then . . .

Having worked in the gem business with my father since ’94, I decided to be the artist I always wanted to be and I began to dabble in the creative art of metal clay – specifically fine silver. You can learn more about what I can create for you and what fine silver is. How to work with me.

I offer my work in my retail store-stall at Crafted at the Port of Los Angeles .  I also teach metal clay art. Learn more about that: Classes I teach.

I am the proud parent of two children, Shane and Devon.  My son, Shane, is teacher in the bay area and an occasional stage manager.  My daughter Devyn, is a HS student and an artist and dancer.  I am also responsible to four, four-legged creatures; Jelly Bean the Pitbull-Boxer wanna-be-lap-dog; Thor, the Boston Terrier, gawd of butt-thunder; Artemis (or Arty), the shy unassuming Chihuahua that never fails to get under your feet; and last but certainly not least, Magic the kitteh, an Himalayan kitty that is so cute it hurts 🙂

Thus far, I’ve lived a bunch o’ years of events . . . adventures . . . challenges. If you chose to experience more about me, observe this site and you will.
NOW – go make something . . . every day . . . even if it’s trouble 🙂
