Polymer for warmth

The wintry chill has me looking at polymer that helps keep your neck warm.

Russian polymer artist Galina Grebennikova from Dublin, Ireland recycles men’s silk ties into her necklaces. Clever and useful.

Italy’s Ilenia Moreni finishes off a luscious yellow silk scarf with polymer finial cones for an ancient and exotic bit of warmth.

Both artists’ sites will heat up your imagination.

        Good choices! I just recently discovered Ilenia, and she is just as kind as she is creative. I love how she puts things together!
        Galina is new to me, and, wow, there is so much to see on her flickr site.
        Thanks for the discoveries and inspiration as always.

          I am utterly charmed by Galina’s use of silk ties in her jewlery…there is something about repurposing that makes a piece much more than the sum of it’s parts. Truly inspiring!

                Somehow I missed this one! I love the disk beads! I’ve been using that element in my “Urban Tribal” jewelry line for decades. Galina‚Äôs colors and textures are so wonderfully paired together with the richness of the silk ties!
