Romania’s Ana Cerniciuc has a way with polymer spring flowers that heightens our anticipation of the season.

Her snowdrop earrings are simple constructions that capture the essence of these early blooms. Her tulips are similarly simple yet we know that the curl of the petals against that tight bud is accurate.

Ana uses Facebook and Pinterest to show her characters and flowers. These two sites have become increasingly important places to find new work from around the world. Have a pinteresting weekend.

    These are beautiful! I’m reminded over and over again that stunning doesn’t have to mean complicated! I’d like to see these done with fuchsia flowers… they’re my favorite. 🙂

              These are beautiful, Ana. I can almost hear birds chirping and feel the warm sun on my face.

              I love Pinterest, but I thought it was against the rules to post photos of your own work there. No? It is definitely one of the most explosive avenues of social media available. Pins “go viral” faster than tweets. I would love to be able to take advantage of it to self-promote, so I am going back to read the rules again.

                You’re right. Pinterest etiquette suggests that you avoid self-promotion. That could be a sticky wicket. Thanks for the heads up.

                Beautiful work, Ana!
                But beware of Pinterest – it’s a pandora’s box of copyright violation issues. Their terms of service hold pinners liable for all damages and they also reserve the right to sell anything you pin, whether you own the image or not. It could be another Napster in the making. I’ve deleted all my boards until it plays out.

                  They have issues for sure. In the meanwhile it’s a terrific resource for me so I’m hanging on while they sort out the difficulties.
