Ending the year with a bang

Scotland’s Melanie Muir has gotten a jump on the new year with a refreshed web site, new work and a plunge into the world of teaching polymer. This bracelet is entitled Mountain High, Valley Low.

To end the year with a bang, Melanie’s Rocks Cuff (shown on the right) won “Polymerista of the Month” in Voila’s advanced category for December. The craftmanship for entries into this competition keep climbing higher and higher.¬†Follow Melanie on Facebook as well.

Got plans to wrap up your year and head into the new? I’d love to hear about them.

      Melanie’s work is just stunning in its use of color and strong visual impact; the combination of complex patterns and simple shapes makes you just want to sit and admire them all day.

                        Melanie’s work is magnificent. It is inspirational as Jana says. Her website conveys her spirit and is beautifully done. It fascinating to read the articles about her work and inspiration…her commitment to do the required juggling and to be creative NOW. We love seeing the outcomes Melanie.

It is lovely to know that the results of me “squeezing my brains” (as I call it) have met with your approval. And I will happily plan to come to the US or wherever to teach, just let me know! Big festive hug to you all, Mel.
