Keeping it simple

Gosia Moiko keeps her earrings simple and silkscreened on PolymerClayDaily.com

I’m still stuck on the simple stuff.

Yesterday the theme was circles, today we take in squares from Poland’s Moiko that have been silk screened, cut out, and plopped on top of each other.

Moiko is owned by Malgorzata Wawrzynczak who offers a wide selection of silk screens that have been designed specifically for polymer clay.

She excels at simple geometric combinations that feel fresh and fashionable. Here she is on Instagram.

Success with circles

Shannon Tabor makes sophisticated post earrings on PolymerClayDaily.com

After a frustrating day in the studio, it’s a relief to me to see how something like these post earrings from South Carolina’s Shannon Tabor (Charleston_Clay_Jewelry) can be so straightforward and successful.

Sometimes we make things more difficult than they need to be.

Shannon cuts textured circles in several sizes then highlights the textures and stacks them falling downward.

Unusual, sophisticated and done! Posted on Instagram.

Polymer roots

Shelley Atwood puts her own spin on scrap mokume gane earrings on PolymerClayDaily.com

Think of polymer techniques as having a lineage when you look at these earrings from Texas’ Shelley Atwood.

Kathy Amt taught Dayle Doroshow who shared it with me who showed a whole bunch of folks this scrap technique on video. Who knows where it came from even earlier or where it will go next?

It’s circled back around to Shelley who’s put her own spin on it on Instagram. Shelley layered thin bits of scrap and then carved her design, which revealed colors underneath.

It’s invigorating when we see new life in our roots.

Snow stars

Celine Roumagnac brightens the morning with her snow stars on polymerclyadaily.com

Enjoy the bright colors of these Snow Stars from France’s Celine Roumagnac. They’re a fresh way to start your week.

Celine takes the usual holiday red and green to new places as she combines pieces in fractal-like stacks of shapes.

See her seasonal polymer delights on Instagram.

A polymer bird in the hand

Ukraine’s Darya Podorozhna (sofoxyclay) gathers a flock of polymer birds on a delicate chain for bird lovers to wear and admire.

While these little beads don’t require much clay, they do demand a keen eye and attention to detail. Birders know their birds. You can catch them on Etsy and here she is on Instagram.

The first week after vacation has rushed by and already I could be back in the holiday frenzy. Over at StudioMojo, we’ll try to slow it down and move into the holidays with grace, a smile, and gifts from our hearts. Join us.

Building botanicals in polymer

Cecile Box brings botanicals to polymer on PolymerClayDaily.com

Paris’ Cecile Bos (11prunes) makes her delicate floral patterns look easy as the rest of us squint in amazement.

You have to think like a textile designer to understand her methods of matching repeats and working on a solid color background.

Cecile worked as a biology researcher so she’s comfortable finding patterns and working in minuscule. She turns these canes into the daintiest of jewelry that she sells on her site and shows her in-process on Instagram.
