Composing a necklace

Pasieka on PCDaily

Karen Pasieka’s turquoise dots are suspended on wires that keep them grouped into a sunny garden of a necklace. Here’s another version on Facebook.

Her framed ranunculus compositions are similarly composed for hanging on the wall. Lean over her shoulder to see how she builds them.

On Instagram  and Facebook Karen reveals her head start on spring gardening in polymer and wedding season accessories that she sells on Etsy.

Fishy polymer

Marchal on PCDaily

The silly marine life from Denmark’s Estelle Marchal (lesptitsmobiles) gave me a laugh. She makes them into mobiles suspended from driftwood.

Can you imagine encountering these creatures floating in the night with their glowing eyes and fish grins? Sometimes a laugh or a surprise are what we need from our art. She claims they scare nightmares away.

There are more jollies and Estelle’s whole story on Instagram, her site, Pinterest and Facebook.

Taking heart

Smith on PCDaily

We’re nearing the end of January and must start collecting our hearts for V Day!

Let’s begin with Staci Louise Smith who likes her hearts pierced, stamped, cracked and colored with inks. Through all the battering, her pieces maintain a well worn and upbeat feeling.

Staci sold out of this heart but she’s uploaded a new batch on her Flickr site.

Do you have hearts on your work table? Send ’em if you got ’em.

Warm, sunny polymer

Kingston on PCDaily

The news this Friday is full of talk about the cold, snowy weather in our neck of the woods. My eyes went hunting for something hot and colorful to warm the white weekend. They landed in Australia – Barwon Heads, Victoria to be precise.

Jemima Kingston (kingstonjewellery) uses a palette of sea and sun colors on her polymer jewelry. Her edges are roughly carved and splashed with wave-like paints or edged with dots and lines. All fresh and breezy.

You’ll want to spend some time first on her Instagram page to get the feel, then wander over to Facebook and Etsy for the full tour. Oh, plus stop by Pinterest to see her inspirations. I hope you’re warm, cozy and in the studio this weekend.

Hollowed beads revisited

Haskova on PCDaily

When teachers begin to prepare for their 2016 classes, we get an early look at what’s ahead in polymer. Here Eva Haskova shows off her January 31 class samples with their graffiti-like marks and hollowed out interiors.

Eva and her students will be pushing the boundaries of the bead in her class in Prague. Wouldn’t you like to know how she uses embossing powders to achieve those spotty edges and slashes of color? See the other classes here and more of Eva’s newest work on Flickr and Facebook.
