Building a polymer stash

Debra DeWolff decided that it’s cool enough to start claying and she got busy building her stash of the polymer components that accompany her felted beads.

She explains that, “I like to work on components and get lots of them made before I start assembling the actual pieces of jewelry.  I’ll work in a particular colorway for several days, making lots of different types of beads and component parts.  Then when I’ve amassed a fair amount, sometimes hundreds of components in several different colorways, I’ll start designing things like necklaces, bracelets and earrings using what I have.”

Her palette is filled with juicy melon colors. And check out her polka dots!

          Debra’s work has always been consistently interesting–and the textures she’s combining here are really fascinating. But boy do I hear that comment about how it’s too hot to clay–

            I love the bracelet and her work. The color palettes are awesome and very balanced. Thanks for sharing.

              Her work is beautiful. I’m going to start saying that I’m making beads and component parts as to why I never finish anything. I’d love to see her staff laid out–hint, hint.

                  Debra’s colors combination are hypnotizing!
                  The idea of being surrounded with lot’s of components is so useful, You’ll always have more variety to choose from when you have LOADS of beads/canes/anything!

                  tnx Cynthia! 🙂
