This bracelet from Portland's Wendy Malinow makes me smile. The deer hunters in my office stop in their tracks and ask how (and why) I have an antler on my arm. I've developed an elaborate spoof about soaking shed antlers in special solutions and then forming them. They can't believe it's polymer clay anyway.

It's one of the only pieces in my collection that I share with my husband who wears it when he's feeling particularly primitive.

Wendy's imagination has free range. A Google search will bring up lots of references to her book illustrations. Now she brings that same carefree and colorful spirit to her creations in metal and polymer. Be prepared to stretch your mind as you look at Wendy's other-worldly works.
