Colorado’s Jainnie Jenkins gives her polymer beads a spring twist. She coats the solid colored clay with mica powders which are scrubbed off after baking to give the quirky shapes more depth and dimension.

Jainnie usually appliques and textures small pieces onto polymer. This shape represents new growth! Spring blooms in unexpected places this week.

      Jainnie’s work is so much fun and these new beads fit right in. So happy to see her work featured here.

        Thank you, Alice! I think Mother Nature has decided that she’s tired of my spring longings and is trying to blow snow my way. Just for that I will have to make more spring beads today!

                      Got to agree with my polymer peeps regarding “fun” as an appropriate adjective for Jainnie’s innovative work! (Plus, we’re happy to have her re-join us in the PCAGOE 🙂
