Polymer pod clusters

This cluster of polymer pods from Loretta Lam hangs like a bunch of colorful bananas. The pendant cluster is suspended on a long copper chain. It’s a new design that she debuted on her Facebook page.

Is it the ripe fruit look that makes them appealing and ready to be plucked?

Loretta thinks the configuration makes them look like fetishes. The vibe is very contemporary. She’s on to something.

Have a inspired weekend!

      I’ve always enjoyed Loretta’s aesthetic–simple, appealing shapes and exquisite color choices–and these are no exception. Nice work, Loretta!

        Fetishes? Um…. yeah kinda but that isn’t really a selling point.

        • reply Cynthia Tinapple ,

          No, no…I think she meant like Zuni fetishes or charms. Not the other kind though I guess that’s there too! Oh my.

          So … the other day I’m at my photographer’s (Doug Yaple) place, dropping off jewelry to photograph, and there were some of Loretta’s pieces, waiting to be photographed. Oh be still my beating heart — these are so luscious and fun and delightful in real life. Had to pick them up and hold them and had trouble putting them down. Thanks for posting, Cynthia.

                      Oh, it didn’t work. I made a similar piece 2 years ago and wanted to share it.
