Polymer connections

Waddington_bail1

Susan Waddington of Polydogz does many things well. What I found myself stuck on as I cruised through her galleries was her ingenious bails for pendants, some from years past, some new.

Integrating polymer bails into pendant design is quite a trick and Susan’s mastered it. She’s fond of using a paper-bead type construction which she camoflages with decorative coverings as in the shield shape with textured folded circle shown here. Layers of patterns form connections that fit seamlessly into her collages of polymer pattern.

You can see more examples on a sister site here and on Etsy here.

        Very visually unique and appealing, plus ingenious, creative, and meticulous construction design.

          I have been drooling over Susan’s work for years now–she brings such a distinctive voice to the art of collaged polymer—what an artist.
