Edison/Abensour’s splash of color

Edison/Abensour's fantaswirl polymer pendant

The colors of PurpleCactusStudios perk me up on a dreary day. The Charlotte, NC duo of Amber Edison and Laurence Abensour are probably best known for their murals and faux finishing (as seen on HGTV).

Their painting business explains the love of color that spills over into their polymer clay pendants and beads made from extruded slices that are flattened into patterns or piled onto shapes.

      Their work is so consistent and inventive–whenever they come up on my contact list I click on the piece to view it, because it’s so irresistably cheerful.
