Blease makes polymer clay time fly

Time flies…or at least it does if you’re looking at Scotland’s Tracy Blease polymer clay clocks. Her “quirkyclocks” are by commssion only and she specializes in reversible pendants. Thanks to Julie Picarello for introducing us to this artist.

I overlooked Valerie Aharoni‘s Best In Show (and first place in the seed bead category) necklace made of seed beads and polymer. It was chosen by Fire Mountain Gems and is featured on the Bead Star cover. Don’t miss her Flickr site for a complete look at her work.

In the Jan/Feb issue of Step by Step Beads magazine, Ronna Weltman has written an article about polymer clay master classes you can watch at home on DVD. If you’re watching your pennies and your carbon footprint, you might want to read her article as well as Ilene Goldman’s “poly-metrics” piece in the magazine.

I’m in a holidaze. Have a dazzling weekend.

    Hi Cynthia – I was thrilled to see Valerie Aharoni’s work and Best in Show award being feted on PCD.

    I have the honor of being her invited guest as she was awarded a free trip to BeadFest in Santa Fe this March. She is a good buddy and an inspiration.

    And I have a few words for Valerie. You are back with a vengeance.
    Your new work is amazingly lovely and as always, innovative.

      What wonderful clocks – I would love to see some more of them. Perhaps Tracy may add some more to her wonderful website?

        Thanks Cynthia!
        And Louise, what a dear, dear friend!
        I am still processing all of this. Feel like a kid in a candy store with no supervision.

          Hi Cynthia, I’m so happy you pointed out Tracy’s polymer art. Very fun stuff to brighten up a winter day!
