Haunani’s polymer clay leis

Lindly Haunani never strays far from her Hawaiian roots. The picture above (which she used for her updated blog header) actually captures three of her latest polymer clay lei necklaces laid next to each other.

Slices of skillfully graduated colors are pinched into petal shapes and strung into sumptuous necklaces. An expert at mimicking nature’s colors and shapes, Lindly produces pieces that transport the wearers to the tropics.

She stacks smaller pinched circles onto headpins to produce another blossom effect. Feel the Hawaiian breezes.

    Wonderful, delectable colors and an incredible design! Don’t forget about making matching bracelets, Lindly!

      Sweet! A loud Hazzah for yet more fantastic works of art by Lindly Haunani! And the colors!! Woow.

      So… Lindly… Are your new lei necklaces available for bartering? *wink wink nudge nudge*

      • reply Susan Lomuto ,

        Beautiful colors and form. Now just imagine more of them, perhaps larger even, mounted on a wall…what do you think Lindly?

        • reply Lindly ,

          Great idea about the wall hanging!…but check back with me later, when my fingers have recovered from all that pinching. I made nine necklaces and a dozen pairs of earrings out of those canes = several thousand pinched petals. But since I’ve almost sold out on this design in under a month, I imagine I will be pinching away again soon. Thanks for the encouragement.

            I really love this design – and the colors are perfect….did you ever make a necklace that features of all the colors shown above in a kind of blend?

              What lovely work with gradients!

                Lindly,
                The colors are delectable and the design is awe inspiring, Wall hanging, ya, but geez, how about around ones neck!
                Just beautiful…
                I missed taking a class with you by a week or so in New York, Darn that move!
                I catch up with you yet!

                  […] The thin folded slices create a cascade of color. We were way ahead of the crowd and featured these new creations of Lindly’s back in […]
