It’s all in your head

I’ve missed a few of our polymer clay nightlights from a session with Leslie Blackford last week. This will give you an idea of the silly fun you can have with a glass votive, some transluscent clay, a small light bulb and a dash of imagination.

Playing like this is a great exercise and the results are often surprising. I had no idea that a strange Walter Cronkite lookalike lived in my head. Click to see a few more twinkling samples.

And here’s Judy Dunn’s.

Summer Fun

This memory wire bracelet from Anne White Designs is perfect for end-of-summer polymer clay fun. The colorful transluscent beads are separated by hollow cording strung onto the wire. Clever, don’t you think?

Anne is from the Cincinnati area.

Spot of Color

Industrial meets organic meets polymer clay in these delicate designs by Pennsylvania’s Sharon of Nectar Jewelry Design. She takes a minimalist approach to the use of clay, using it to add a splash of color to her pieces.

Sharon’s one of those Etsy girls and I thank her for bailing me out of my post-vacation lethargy.

Saving the World

Floridian Karen McGovern is a conservation biologist who creates art and polymer clay jewelry to raise funds for wildlife conservation. "Art can save the world!" she says.

The stories that Karen tells with her jewelry are fascinating…like The Bubble Lady, a polymer clay altered art storybook necklace which it says is "…perfect for those who keep the child inside alive and well entertained." Her Climbing Woman Vine story is told by the piece pictured here.

Karen is all over the web. Find her at Etsy here and at IndiPublic here. Her blog seems to be a bit out of kilter but I’m sure she’ll get back to it and you’ll want to visit regularly.

The link was sent in by Babs Young from Michigan. Have a great weekend.
