Give thanks for

Blackford on PCDaily

Enjoy Leslie Blackford’s Thanksgiving dinner and your own feast if you’re celebrating in the US today.

In many families, going around the dinner table with each person saying what they’re thankful for is part of the day’s traditions.

I am very grateful to you for joining me to make the world brighter and more colorful. Thank you for being part of PolymerClayDaily.

May love, joy and happiness be yours in abundance this holiday season.

Wearing the sunset

Steele on PCDaily

There’s great pleasure in finding  a palette that resonates and mixing the colors in polymer.

Here France’s Laure Steele (Lor et Creations) built her palette from a photograph and then assembled components into a large kaleidoscope cane in Carol Simmons’ recent master class in La Crau, France.

Polymer platters

Chandler on PCDaily

Victoria’s Gera Scott Chandler works in dark, bumpy, rich coiled polymer on this bowl. You might have thought it was fabric at first glance. She scratches and paints and reveals until the colors release their magic. See more fish platters and bowls on her Facebook page.

Gera’s Fusion bracelets are made of two tubes that fit comfortably inside each other. The painted and textured semi-circles show a bit of metal leaf and mysterious shine.

Gera’s a coastal soul and many of her muses and influence come from Canada’s rough west coasts and untamed beaches. She also worked with young children and takes inspiration from the art they taught her. See more on her site and Instagram.

 

Grab a rope

Todua on PCDaily

These bracelets from Ukraine’s Lela Todua (Leland) have an urban tribal vibe.

Big hole tube beads strung on thick rope or multi-strand cording make them a favorite for both men and women.

The beads are polymer stamped with ethnic patterns or graffiti art highlighted with paints.

Catch up with Lela’s rough and ready look on her Etsy store and on Facebook.

Almost edible polymer

Haunani on PCDaily

This is one of Lindly Haunani’s sample bracelets for a July master class which is aptly named Incredible Almost Edible Color. 

The curved tube smoothly fits the back of the wrist with the bouquet of folded petals and leaves stretching across the front. Designed like a wrist corsage, I’m betting that this is comfortable to wear. (But not edible.)

Registration for the 6-day Master Class Camp intensive sessions opens today. The July 8-13 classes in Laurel, Maryland, feature some of polymer’s most accomplished artists. Follow Lindly on Facebook as well.

Eclectic online tonight

Craftcast snatched Staci Louise Smith for an online class as soon as she saw Staci’s faux fossils and painted talisman necklaces. Tonight online Staci will paint and crackle, wire wrap and string an ecelectic mix of fashionable fun while she describes each step.

Oh, this will be fun. Register here to watch live and play the recording again when you need a refresher.

Leather and polymer

Bragina on PCDaily

Leather is all the rage and Russia’s Anna Bragina is all over mixing polymer with leather.

Seeing the photo of her bracelet layed flat makes it more understandable and the magnetic clasp is very au courant.

The slight flare of the four polymer squares help them hug the wearer’s arm. Go to Facebook, her sales site and Flickr to get the complete picture.
