Schwarzenberg’s filigree winner

Schwarzenberg's Beautiful Baroque

Lynne Ann Schwarzenberg, winner of the Bead Dreams 2010 top prize, sent in a picture of her winning entry. Lynne layers floral cane slices over filigree to achieve her “Beautiful Baroque” effect. You can see more recent examples of filigree work on her Facebook photo page.

As Lynne tells it, “I discovered polymer clay in college, when a friend brought over a sampler pack of clay and wanted to make beads to sell as she traveled the country following her favorite band, the Grateful Dead. We made beads together that afternoon, and she left the clay at my apartment when she left on her trip. I was immediately taken by this wonderful, colorful substance, and itโ€™s been a love affair ever since.” Have a lovely weekend.

    It’s fantastic, so detailed. Somehow reminds me of the style of the scandinavian national costumes! Google them if you want ๐Ÿ™‚

                I’ve taken one workshop with Lynne Ann. She’s a wonderful teacher. I think she’s found a great niche with these filigrees. Her florals complement them so beautifully. I drool at the thought of one of her new workshops using the filigrees.

                  Congratulations to Lynne Anne! Her classes have brought my own artistry up quite a few notches. She is a talent in the PC field.
