Shriver’s new designs

This photo that accompanied the description of Sarah Shriver’s February class shows polymer clay “petal bracelets” that depart from Sarah’s earlier works. She’s been perfecting her intricate kaleidoscope canes and celtic knots for nearly twenty years. You can see her early works in the PolymerArtArchives and on her web site.

These new designs move in a looser, larger, more colorful direction. I’d like to show you more but these are the only photos I could find. Guess you’ll have to take one of her classes in California or catch up with her in Spain, Portugal or France this spring.

    I love those! But I thought they were pins at first — Sarah should make some on a smaller scale that ARE pins! That 3-D effect and the canework would make them really special! (I’d buy one!)

      Yes, they are lovely! Sarah taught this workshop at the 2008 Cabin Fever Clay Fest. Her workshop at the 2009 Cabin Fever Clay Fest ( is also a a move in a slightly different direction for Sarah. The poppy inlay/flower shows her wonderful color blending techniques as well. The bracelets everyone made in her workshop were beautiful!

        These are gorgeous! Sarah’s work is extraordinary. I had the pleasure of taking a three day workshop with her this summer at The Bead House in Bristol, RI. Not only is she a talented artist, but a wonderful teacher as well.

          I can’t think of anything that would be more fun than taking a class with Sarah in Spain!

            This is when I feel the pain of living Down Under most keenly! When I see a class by Sarah Shriver, priced so reasonably.

            Its *almost* worth the price of the plane ticket from Sydney!

              Hey, Sera! There’s still room left for you if you decide to come. We’ve got some of your sisters coming from the UK as well! But remember, it’s in Feb. Happy Holidays to you!
