Polymer Clay Jewels for Men

We’ve featured two men this week so how about a bit of polymer clay man jewelry?

Leslie Blackford made these pendants which incorporate an ancient arrowhead and a spear point that she found in her area in Kentucky. My husband eagerly added her “modern relics” to his collection of manly polymer bling. See more on her deviant site and take a look at her booth pictures from the recent MakerFaire in Austin.

Wendy Malinow’s husband and boys love to wear her rough exotic pieces. Her brother sometimes wears one of her polymer clay antler cuffs on his bicep for a primitive effect. Very cave man.

Have we spotted a new trend? What polymer pieces are your male customers and the men in your life drawn to?

Susan Lomuto found this terrific link to a "Pins for Men" show at Facere Gallery! What a coincidence! And primitive isn’t the only look, as our commenters point out.

    I have sold a few pendants to men, for their own wear, and at the Providence show this past weekend, there was a gentleman sporting a Ford and Forlano pin on his lapel. I think it is as much about the man as the work.

      [...] Late last night I found Cynthia Toops‘ micromosaic polymer clay pins in Facere Gallery’s recent exhibit “Pins for Men”. I was set to send the link to Cynthia Tinapple this morning and woke up to find that her post today was titled ‘Polymer Clay Jewels for Men’. Looks like there is a growing trend toward jewelry for men and not surprisingly, Toops’ representational pins are in the forefront. View the entire exhibit here. The artists of Facere have designed new work with the male in mind. Facere has assembled a singular collection of handcrafted pins (as well as cuffs, cuff links, rings and necklaces) to appeal to the discerning male client. It’s time to stimulate your wardrobe by adding a unique piece of wearable art. [...]

        Jeffrey Lloyd Dever wears his own work, too and it’s quite dashing. I don’t think man jewelry needs to always be rough and tumble. Sophisticated and bright is often more effective, in my opinion.

          I have made had gun grips for my BIL. I’d love to get my hands on blanks for pocket knives to make handles for. I am using the pen kits and those are big hits with the guys also.
