I’d love to sit down and try some of the beads that Belinda (birnco) has been working on during her first year with polymer clay. The technique looks simple (an extrusion/mokume gane combination) and the effect is stunning.
She’s got a great sense of color that makes the end result luminous, improving as she’s progressed through the year. This riot of color is a good way to start the week.
My daughter’s here to visit and help with Thanksgiving festivities. Maybe we can sneak a couple of hours off to play in the studio like we used to.
Note: Carol Simmons gives a few more clues about reducing her cane with help from the microwave. Scroll way down in the comments on her post and you’ll see her response.

Belinda is also a lovely hostess and a generous soul! I have had the pleasure of seeing her work in person and each piece is flawless. I am so glad you found her – she deserves the recognition.
Does Belinda Birnco have a website? I’d love to see these beads close up and personal!
