If you’re feeling bored with your round polymer beads see what Dimitra Chiamanta (DemiArti) is doing with hers. This Greek artist who now lives in the Netherlands, bisects her brightly patterned circles and inserts felt disks in the middle.
She also combines leather, silver, wool and other materials with polymer. When the skies are gray and the winter long, Dimitra uses polymer’s colors to remind her of sunshine and spring. She knows how to breathe new life into common shapes.
This exhuberant design approach shows up again and again in the New Label Project store photos in Amsterdam (it’s considered one of the city’s cool shops) that you can track on Facebook. Here’s Dimitria’s own FB page too.
