Polymer menagerie

Isola on PCDaily

Cats, cows, goats, robots and other comic creatures are splatted flat against the wearer’s chest in Caroline Cornic Isola’s world (Klick Art) of polymer pendants.

She starts with square shapes and decorates them with minimum pattern and maximum personality. Their bead and buna legs dangle comfortably.

Caroline is an illustrator and comic artist at heart (see her animal sketches here). We’re so lucky that she added polymer to her bag of tricks. You can catch her on Etsy and Facebook.

Polymer Liahona

Loveless on PCdaily

These Liahona pendants from MaryAnne Loveless intrigued and confused me. They’re very ornment-like, carefully layered and textured in but too small to hang on a tree.

If you google Liahona, you’ll find that in the Book of Mormon, a round brass ball of curious workmanship with two spindles was left on the doorstep indicating which way the leader’s party should travel.

MaryAnne scores on all counts with her polymer brand of curious workmanship and decorated spindles. She’s prepared a whole series of Liahona pendants built over striped beads with carefully applied embellishments that you can see on Flickr,her blog, Pinterest, and Etsy.

Semi-precious polymer

Belchi on PCDaily

Ana Belchi’s imitation agates sit comfortably surrounded by rough black bezels suspended from sleek brass bails.

See how this Madrid artist’s polymer semi-precious lookalikes move beyond modest beach stones.

She says she’s wanted to explore stones for years and finally hit upon designs that work. You can see them on Flickr and Facebook.

Art by inchies

Garcia on PCDaily

Spain’s Miryam Garcia moves us away from yesterday’s large works to witness the power of small ones.

Inchies are so ubiquitous that we hardly notice them. But when Miryam grouped hers, the dots and textures took on new life as a colorful quilt. Wall art by inches!

Earlier this year Miryam’s Occluded Symmetry won a Staedtler design contest. She shows her impressive prize loot on her blog.

Even better, she reveals her design drawing (below right) for perfectly positioning all the dots on the pendant. And here’s the back of the piece.

You can wander through her Flickr photos and see how dots and cracks have evolved in her work as she’s taken classes and developed her style.
