Wilkes found objects found

Lori Wilkes (Millori) has a knack for integrating found objects with polymer clay. This bracelet includes antique china embedded in polymer. Her transfers are an intriguing mix of old images on backgrounds of bright modern colors and she’s working on an “industrial meets organic” concept.

What amazes me is that I’ve overlook Lori’s work and she lives just a few miles away from me here in Ohio! It was only by thumbing through bead magazines at the library that I ran into her work. It’s great to start the week with a new name and a new website (plus blog, Etsy, Flickr) on our list.

    Lori’s work has a wonderful energy and play about it. I especially like her door pendants. Keep up the great work, Lori!

    Thanks, Cynthia, for starting my day with a big kick of energy… I think I’m going to need it! xo -Melanie

      Thank you for posting Lori’s work. I quickly viewed her doors in the newest issue of Belle Armoire Jewelry and thought they were great. Reminded me I need to go bak and read further. Thanks again Cynthia. Tish
