Blackburn’s bangles

Carol Blackburn's polymer bangles

This new page of bangles and necklaces from London’s Carol Blackburn shows lively and colorful designs that are finished to satiny perfection. The closeups of her mobius/color blended strips are inspiring.

Carol’s techniques are thoroughly explained in her Making Polymer Clay Beads book which has been translated into English, French, German and Italian. Her work serves as a gentle Monday reminder about the importance of finishing.

            These are GREAT!!! And it was cool seeing Blackburn’s Bangle’s because I am a Blackburn… But most of my Great Aunts and Uncles are from Mount Airy, NC… Great shop.

              I have her book and I admire her work. The Bangle’s are stunning and I wish I had a 1/4 of her talent.

                          I am happy to call Carol a friend and proud to own one of her beautiful bracelets and a pair of Mobius earrings. She deserves all the accolades. Her book is the one I recommend to all my beginning students. Way to go Carol!!
