Whirlwind polymer swirls

Today I kept bumping into polymer clay swirls and spirals. They struck me as colorful, modern interpretations of ancient, elemental designs. One idea is from Portugal and one from Slovenia.

Alexandra and Teresa (Xana and Te) have momentarily moved away from their flowers and polychromatic palette with a necklace made of Skinner blend double spiral beads. The matching bracelet makes quite an impact as well. Here’s an earlier post about the duo.

The spiraling shell pendant is a repeating theme in Milica Bubanja’s work. She lives in Slovenia and says of her work, “I love a challenge. I love the process. I love the results.” See the dazzling dark reds on her Flickr site.
