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.)
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.
There’s nothing like reading about snowy Vermont to get you primed for the season–unless it’s an article about Celie Fago in snowy Vermont.
The online issue of Woodstock Magazine is free. Flip to page 54 and you’ll see Celie in her studio teaching a class how to make one of her polymer bangles that’s loaded with rings of stone and beaded wires.
The bracelet jangles with a collection of circles made from precious metal clays.
Celie mixes her media and I cheer when I find polymer holding its own in her rich melange of metals, beads and found objects. Browse her Etsy store, her blog and her Facebook page.
Melanie Muir has upgraded her site just in time for her debut at the National Museum of Scotland in Endinburgh on November 29 and 30. Her tools, coaching, and workshops are easily accessible in one neat presentation on the updated site.
Melanie was selected as one of a handful of artists to share her techniques, processes and inspirations by Craft Scotland for their Meet Your Maker events.
The selected makers will talk informally to the public, demonstrate their work and show working pieces. Melanie will also teach a workshop at the museum.
“I am constantly inspired by the colours and patterns that surround me at my coastal home in Nairn, in the Scottish Highlands,” Melanie says. This cuff is part of her Rock series and is entitled Beach Net.
