Maine’s Linda Leach’s journey through polymer reads like a 13-year odyssey through classes and guilds and experiments in her own multi-media style. Linda’s voyage and this necklace brought her a 2017 Niche Award in the Polymer Jewelry category.
She created the necklace for #39 of last year’s weekly polymer challenge. Linda called it, “…a wild new piece that I know is over the top, but I love it anyway.” The necklace incorporates leaves bound in brass strips and brass wire with polymer clay cane work as well as her liquid clay/alcohol ink over etched copper technique. The cane repeats the design on the etched copper.
Kudos to Linda and what she’s accomplished. Where is your art odyssey leading you?
