Lovecraft polymer

Belchi on PCDaily

Spain’s Ana Belchi plays with forms in her Lovecraft-inspired series of polymer baubles.

The bulbs and tentacles radiate out from the center of this pendant with pleasing dark symmetry. See more on Instagram, Flickr, and her site. She’ll be teaching a pre-conference workshop at this year’s Synergy4.

Thinking of introducing another dimension into your work?

Off-kilter polymer

Stavridou on PCDaily

The way these beads join looks impossible and all wrong. But that same unexpected construction makes the necklace from Greece’s Arieta Stavridou look so very right.

Her polymer patterns are a jumble of color and shapes as well with the lines clearly scribed and then accented with paint.

She has lots more examples of her upbeat, off-kilter combinations on her Big Fish Facebook page and on Pinterest.

It’s just the thing as we cruise into an upbeat, off-kilter weekend.

Join us for more behind-the-scenes frolicking through the polymer world on StudioMojo this Saturday morning. 

Showing off the results

Steele on PCDaily

What do you do with those magnificent pieces of cane? Sometimes it’s a challenge.

Here France’s Laure Steele (LorEtCreations) makes pieces of a master class cane into a stunning pendant by elegantly joining two shield shapes. The accents she uses are subtle and effective.

See more of her sleight of hand on Pinterest and Facebook.

I’m in a cane class with Marie Segal in Kentucky and my eye is searching for ways to show off the best bits. Join the StudioMojo group for a Saturday morning report.

Glacial polymer

Tserenbadam on PCDaily

The fine layers in this pendant from Switzerland’s Enkhe Tserenbadam make it look like a sculpted glacier. Bits of silver leaf accent the thin striations.

Enkhe grew up in Mongolia and these forms seem so personal and intuitive that it makes you wonder if she saw them as a child.

The fine ball chain is baked into the polymer, a good solution for this pendant. Enkhe shows a burst of new jewelry and vessels on Facebook and Flickr.

The beauty of her many layers may prompt you to go thinner and thinner with your next piece to see what happens.

Right and wrong

Enkhe clarified that the shapes really do relate to her childhood, in fact they were medicinal. Read her comment below. But there is no metal leaf in her piece.

Simple curves

LN Jewels on PCDaily

Sometimes a simple sensual curve and a hollow spot add to the allure of a piece. Here a mokume gane veneer drapes gently over a flat back layer and a cord slides easily through the middle of the resulting pendant.

France’s LN Jewels Creation sprinkles tantalizing design bits throughout her polymer works on Instagram and Facebook.
