Decorating for the holidays

Leonini on PCDaily

Cecilia Leonini’s necklace has a holiday air about it. Like a garland you might string around a tree.

The long Skinner blended tubes are matched by round beads of varying sizes. The balance appears haphazard but hangs in a most appealing way.

Cecelia has been working on balancing elements as you’ll see on Flickr and Facebook.

Anthropological polymer

Williamson on PCDaily

The trendy Pennsylvania-based store, Anthropologie, asked Genevieve Williamson for a line sheet in July and samples in November. Her polymer pieces are rough hewn, carved, textured and faceted in soft heathered colors. The retailer loved the samples. Now she waits.

Can you imagine being nervous that they’d say no and petrified that they’d say yes? That’s 2000 pieces and exposure in over 185 stores!

How brave is Genevieve to share her samples and her anxiety in a blog post? Will we think she failed if they turn her down? Not me! That takes guts. You go, girl. You make us proud.

I’m happy to say that you can read more about Genevieve in my book, Polymer Clay Global Perspectives. You can catch more of her vibe on Pinterest.

If you’d like to say, “I knew her when”, you can shop in her Etsy store now.

Going bigger

Brady on PCDaily

Arizona’s Marlene Brady likes big beads. In this case they’re chunky ceramic-looking polymer beads with loads of texture.

This is as large as she’s let herself go since the textures and layers of colors add visual weight. Does she dare go bigger? When you’re having fun, it’s hard to pull back on the reins!

See where she’s headed on her blog, Pinterest, and Flickr.

Polymers niche

Arlene Groch’s Blended Brights necklace is in the finals for the 2015 Niche Awards. Arlene’s hard to find online but she shared more of her summer creations like this blue beauty on the Philadelphia guild site.

You’ll also find Lindly Haunani, Judy Summers, Wiwat Kamolpornwijit and Louise Fischer Cozzi in the running. Link alert! Following these gems may take you some time.
