To keep everyone up to date on the growing interest in polymer clay in Europe, the UK’s Christine Dumont has launched a new site called Voila! that gathers works and news from around the EU. You’ll want to sign up to get all the information. (Those are Christine’s own butterfly beads at the left.)

Reporting on the recent Euro Clay Carnival in France, the Voila site shows this pendant from Holland’s Saskia Veltnaar (Sassy & Co.) which tweaks Bettina Welker’s etching technique by undercutting, shaping and bending the layers.

Thanks to Marjon Donker for sending the link. My Minneapolis meeting was a success and I’m processing all that I learned. More on that later this week.

        Christine, your organic shapes are just devine and so playful. Isn’t this site special – it keeps us all up to date and inspired year round. Nothing lifts my mood better than logging onto PCC. I love the archives toooooo.

            Voila! is a great concept and as the interest in polymer in Europe grows I’m sure Christine’s website will help us all to raise our game. And Christine, your featured beads are simply stunning.
