Wintry grungy polymer

Lela Todua's winter butterflies and dreadlock beads on PolymerClayDaily.com

The roughly striped big hole beads from Ukraine’s Lela Todua (LelandJewellery) are meant for dreadlocks but could be threaded on multi-strand leather (for those without adequate hair).

Her butterflies land lightly on a sweater and her palette feels toasty as the weather turns chilly here in the midwest.

On Etsy and Instagram, her works have a dark grungy edge with a unisex appeal that’s worth studying.
