Her training translates so easily into polymer that it’s often hard to identify what media she’s using. That’s the next step forward for our craft, isn’t it?
Izabela uses slim tubes in graduated purples formed into a 3D necklace. She has been experimenting for months with what she calls her Straw Technique.
Genevieve takes a more minimalist approach with long slender polymer tubes strung into a bright multi-color strand. “Is it too light?” she wonders on Instagram.
PCD will look at several new stringing, assembling, designing developments that have emerged recently. Looks are changing for spring!
In this season of ribbons and bows, Sharyn Neuwirth (NewEarthCraftWorks) demonstrates how you can shape ribbons of polymer. I’d guess the strips are extruded and dusted with metallics.
This Washington, D.C. artist bypasses social media pretty successfully but she offers quite a selection of variations on the ribbon theme on her Flickr pages.
Speaking of sinewy and curvy (see yesterday’s post), take a look at Ontario’s Helen Breil and her new wrapped polymer cuff.
She’ll be building this bracelet step-by-step on Craftcast in January. Pan pastels, mica powders and zippers are some of the key ingredients in this intriguing design.
