This stunning necklace by Wendy Malinow shows the excitement and artistry that can be achieved with polymer clay. For a week I’ll be surrounded by works like this that stretch our minds and our talents and sharing them with you (once we get the network connection working properly).

Wendy doesn’t have her own web site but there are a couple of pages about her polymer work and her PMC work floating around. If you click on the image you’ll get some idea of the complexity of this piece. It’s filled with texture, color and sprinkled with rhinestones. It sings!

Note: You can see lots of Wendy’s work in a new book called Metal Clay and Mixed Media Jewelry

                  I really like the look of it but I don’t think I’d wear it as a necklace, so what to do with it? Any suggestions cause
                  i’d love to make something like this, I just don’t know what I could do with it. Any suggestions would be a great help. Thanks!

                    Oh my goodness, I saw this piece in person and it is amazing! Wendy is an artist who is really pushing the polymer clay “envelope” with her incredible work. I’d wear this piece anyday – everyday! Wow! You can tell, it knocked me out.

                      Wendy is one of my favorite polymer artists! Her use of color and her design sensibilities are so wonderful and unique. This necklace is the perfect example of the magic that can happen when an artist takes the time to develop an original approach to a medium like polymer clay.
