Croatia’s Nikolina Otrzan has been on a polymer bangle binge lately. Her large graphic patterns are usually outlined in black or white to accentuate the contrast between colors.

Companion patterns peek out from the bangles’ interiors and add a bonus to the designs.

See the whole collection on Nikolina’s Flickr pages and catch more of her intriguing designs on her Etsy showcase .

Her fresh, bold approach may make you rethink your work as you start the week.

        I love it when the back of a polymer object is as beautifully finished as the front. Or in this case, the inside! Nice work, Nicolina!

                  Is there a tutorial or a polymer clay book instructing on the making of bangles? They are simply gorgeous.

                  Thank you.
