Prophater polymer cover girl

Laurie Prophater generously demoed her flat faux ivory bangles at a recent conference and I can tell you that they’re fun to make and wear. Zentangle aficionados loved the drawing and carving involved.

Read all about how to make these bracelets in the summer issue of Belle Armoire Jewelry magazine. In fact, Laurie’s the cover girl! You can find more examples on her Flickr pages.

Laurie’s in the decorating biz and her blog is full of links that will lead you to wonderful (and outrageously expensive) designers, fabrics and furniture. She’s on top of the latest trends and enjoys translating them into polymer.

Christi Friesen’s featured in the issue as well! I must get to the bookstore to see if I missed anyone else.

    I love her bangles – the incised details play off the graphic shape for a wonderful end result!

      Congratulations, Laurie, on your ‘cover’ – how exciting for you! And well deserved; the bracelets are _very_ cool…

      I’m spending a design and art filled weekend, attending galleries and exhibit openings with my son (a design school student) – the visual ‘candy’ links on Laurie’s blog fit in nicely with that theme…I”m on overload (and loving it)..

        The faux ivory bangles are very impressive.

          It is interesting to see how, again, historic African jewelry and art design is making its way into mainstream U.S. and European work.
