How did I miss the sizzling colors of Suzanne Anderson? I bumped into her (here’s her blog) as I was browsing through Laura Balombini’s site yesterday. She and Laura are east coast neighbors. I found this recent interview and pictures of Suzanne’s studio in the Bangor Daily News. She gravitated to polymer after years as a beader and metalworker.

These earrings are from her Fiesta line. I enjoy the way she separates her online galleries by color. Suzanne chose her studio name because the word expresses the upbeat mood of her jewelry…Yikes!


Leave a comment on yesterday’s post to enter our first holiday giveaway of our hot-off-the-press Creative Sparks! Wow, loads of lovely comments have come in already. I’ll close entries at 5:00 Friday and choose a lucky winner.


The lucky Creatives Sparks winner was Crystal Gordine of Kingston, Ontario. You were all so enthusiastic that we’ll do another book giveaway soon!

    This is just what I needed today. Something colorful and sizzling. These would look so cool on a little Christmas tree as ornaments.

      Perfect post to brighten my morning!!!

      Pantone’s color for 2011 is Honeysuckle…a soft magenta. It looks like Suzanne was ahead of this trend.

                I ‘m a polymer clay artist wannabe – just met Suzanne this past weekend at a show we were in . I was so impressed with her work – so colorful and imaginative . She has inpired me sooooooo much. It’s so fabulous how versatile clay is and how everyone uses it in her/his own way. can’t wait to get back to work! Thanks Suzanne, and really nice to have been able to meet you!
