The washers and nuts that she uses as accent beads on the robot pendant repeat the mechanical theme.
Caroline loves to draw and she’s just gotten started at drawing on polymer. You’ll want follow along on her Facebook page (that’s the only place I could find her) and see where she takes these monsters and the process.
Geometric, minimalist, modern, distressed, urban – some of the adjectives you might use to describe the polymer jewelry of Israel’s Danna Gusman pictured wearing her work here.
The integral use of chains, the scratched and dirty textures make a chic, fashionable statement.
You can find more work like this Squares Modern necklace and Gray and Black Mandala on Danna’s Facebook and Pinterest sites as well as her Etsy site. Genevieve Williamson sent in this link and you can see that she shares an aesthetic with Danna.
Maryland’s Kelly Russell crackles, paints, transfers, stamps and leafs and she does it so well that it’s hard to say what the material is. But what you can say it that it’s beautiful and you can bet there’s polymer involved.
It looks like Kelly has abandoned her website and only puts photos on Facebook. She has a huge Pinterest site but none of her own art is there. She makes us work to find her.
You can click on these photos to get larger versions but you’ll have to go to Facebook to see other shots that show their intricacy and dimension. The pendant below has surprising dimension (the polymer cameo is quarter-sized) and a glass bezel.
The colors and the crackle make the pieces look ancient. Kelly has spent the last few years refining her PMC skills and we welcome her back to the polymer neighborhood.
