Spring shapes and colors

Cecilia Leonini blends inks into a spring fantasy of color on PolymerClayDaily

Thinking of spring? This pendant from Italy’s Cecilia Leonini (ImpastArte) says it all – fresh colors, delicate lines, light flowery shapes. Here she is on Instagram.

Cecilia is teaching her Comic and Chopped techniques at an April 13 workshop in Turin sponsored by Staedtler.

Her background is in illustration so drawing smooth blends and fine lines with inks on raw polymer suits her just fine and delights the rest of us.

Harmony through pattern

Makes your heart flutter

 Lorraine Vogel makes your heart flutter on PolymerClayDaily

Florida’s Lorraine Vogel (wiredorchid) makes your heart flutter with her newest series of hearts on Flickr. They’re stamped and painted and have the look of enamels.

She captures flowers and butterflies and other designs within the heart shapes and with a beach-meets-boho style. Here she is on Instagram.

East meets west pendant

Janet Bouey's pendant contains echoes of the coasts on PolymerClayDaily.com

Asian shapes meet polymer stones and colors of Vancouver’s beaches in Janet Bouey’s newest pendant.

Janet took some of the surface treatments she learned in a Claire Maunsell class and made the veneers integral to this new design that picks up the colors of the shore.

She doesn’t say much about herself but you’ll want to keep track of Janet on Instagram and Flickr.

Monday bouquet

Floren Jewelry sends you a mini Monday bouquet on PolymerClayDaily.com

Nothing like a dozen red roses for your Monday. This small pendant was created by Belarus’ Floren (JewelryFloren).

The pendant measures 1.6″ x 1.4″ and is made from an air-dry polymer. You can imagine how lovingly this delicate bouquet was assembled on its metal backing.

While Floren doesn’t reveal much about herself online, she’s surely a romantic.

Share your favorites with PCD

Small landscapes from Siberia's Yuliya Zharova on PolymerClayDaily.com

The simple and striking pendants by Siberia’s Yuliya Zharova (WildOnionArt) show knowledge of stark winter and spring scenes. It’s challenging to effectively show so much with a limited palette and in the small spaces that pendants and earrings allow.

Yuliya was brought to your attention by Missouri’s Heidi McCullough who creates simple wildlife ornaments of her own. When an artist strikes a chord with you, it’s great to share them with PCD. Thanks, Heidi.
