Van Lingen’s Roots

Your travels often reveal themselves in your polymer clay work. Take a look at the recent work of Christelle Van Lingen. Though she’s now living in the U.S., she can’t deny her South African roots and the impact they have on her designs.

I like the look of this Baobab tree bead on her Etsy site. It’s a distinctly African tree that, as legend has it, the devil plucked up and turned upside down, leaving its roots in the air. I’m back to my roots in the midwest.
