Strong simplicity

nells_dottir

Jayne Flanagan’s (nellsdottir) necklaces caught my eye and you’ll be surprised at who visited Nell’s booth in Sydney.

I’m on the road and weary so you’ll have to unravel this mystery yourself from Jayne’s Instagram page or from Facebook or Pinterest,  Her painted polymer pieces like these Squiggly beads have a strong and fashionable simplicity.

I have a few more hours of podcasts to enjoy as I drive across the midwest. More news from the road when I arrive at my destination tomorrow.

From Skinner blend to sunset

St. James on PCDaily

It’s your week at the beach with polymer. Today JoAnne St. James replicates Connecticut sunsets and beach scenes. She translates the sky colors into beautiful Skinner blends. It’s a short step from a blend to landscape.

St. James on PCDaily

A handful of shells, some sand, sun touching the water – JoAnne gives the scenes finishing touches and then turns them into wearable summer memories.

You can witness her magic on Facebook and Etsy and catch more beach bits on Pinterest. Her about page tells you her story.

Polymer seahorse rodeo

Be careful! This Seahorse Rodeo from Utah’s MaryAnne Loveless may rope you in and drag you under with patterns and colors and shapes.

MaryAnne often creates her beads and sculptures in big groups. A look at her Flickr gallery (also Pinterest) shows the logic of repeating a design until you get the feel of it and have worked out all the challenges and rough spots. You also see what an impression a big collection can make.

A tip of the beach hat to MaryAnne for bringing us these 3″ tall polymer broncos.
