Simple geometry in polymer

Belliard on PolymerClayDaily.com

Barcelona’s Florence Belliard (flo’touch) brings calm and sophisticated stripes to her Helios pendant. Randomly striped veneers in muted colors circle around the center of this cutout.

Florence samples all kinds of treatments and finishes on her Flickr pages. It’s when she tackles geometry that she hits a sweet spot. Her circles, stripes and squares have a harmony about them.

Go see for yourself on Flickr and Facebook.

Stripes that sizzle

Blackburn on PCDaily

This striped free-form hollow bead necklace from London’s Carol Blackburn certainly brightens our week!

Carol has an absolutely magical and ingenious way of creating these patterns. She often cuts and reassembles simple stripes into more complex geometric forms (see her Chop and Change workshop) but the stripes also look gorgeous on their own.

See examples of her stripe manipulations on Flickr and catch up with her latest on Facebook.

Patriotic polymer

Lehocky on PCDaily

Pull out your red, white and blue polymer clay and get busy on this weekend’s theme beads! Need inspiration?

Handy on PCDaily

Here Ron Lehocky piles his patriotic hearts to raise flag awareness and money for the Kids Center. Note the wavy blade stripes.

Barb Handy (BarbiesBest) creates themed beads for all occasions. Stars and stripes are one of her specialties. PCD has followed along for years as Barb widened and expanded her Etsy offerings. 

Greiser on PCDaily

If you’re a caner, you may prefer Carola Greiser’s (polymerclayshed) version of holiday fireworks found on Instagram. Have a star-spangled weekend.
