Taking polymer out on a limb

Tamara Shea’s “out-on-a-limb” polymer series hits a topical theme that we’ll consider more deeply next week. The season of hearts is upon us and I’ve been collecting polymer versions for your pleasure.

I’m struck by Tamara’s consistent quality and search for inspiration. All her Block Party Press polymer jewelery pieces are original designs from drawings turned into hand-carved stamps. She documents her daily inspirations on her blog and customers respond to her out-on-a-limb heartfelt art. Have a heartfelt weekend.

      I love her work and her shop is a favorite of mine on Etsy. She has a wonderful sense of color and her pieces are fun and unique.

        I’ve always been impressed by her amazing imagination. Her work is very refreshing and her shop inspired me to try Etsy myself. (Love acrylic on polymer…)

                Thanks so much Cynthia! Thanks for all the lovely comments too. I do believe I blushed as I read them! I’m so happy that I can share my art with people who can truly appreciate it! Thanks again.

                  Consistency is right! She has carved out a personal style that is instantly recognizable, yet refuses to grow stale. I always look forward to the next series. Intelligent, slyly fun, and sweet without the schmaltz–Tamara deserves every bit of her considerable success.
