Williamson speaks polymer

Genevieve Williamson (Jibby and Juna) is a metalsmith and I love her description of learning to design and work in polymer clay as she made this latest necklace.

She explains that, “…being trained as a metalsmith I often still design/think in metal. Then I translate to polymer, modify and move on. This is the first piece that, in my head at least, I felt like I thought through the process in the new language (polymer).”

She’s speaking fluently and her Etsy site is full of simple, textural, modern pieces.

    Bella, bella!! Well done, Genevieve! I’m lovin’ your crossover between metal and polymer – creates a very unique look. (And, might I see a little bit of Ronna Sarvas Weltman in your work? She’s been effecting my work too… Hard to resist! lol)

    Thanks for the great post, Cynthia! Now, when do we get to see some of YOUR work? 😉

        Her blog is fun and her work is stunning. I just love the prints under glass pendants and necklace. She certainly has her own vibe.

          I love the simple rustic quality to Genevieve’s work. It reminds me of the character I use to achieve with intaglio printmaking. Though seemingly simple, I find these to be very rich. Beautiful.

            Genevieve is quite a sensitive and wonderful artist. I’m loving watching her grow in her medium.
