Edgier romance, easier extrusion

This Lovely Bones pendant from Georgia jeweler Jenny Baughman reminds us that not everything romantic has to be hearts and flowers.

Jenny often uses polymer to fill her deep bezels and add color to her modern primitive metal shapes.

See more of her work on her Etsy site and on FaceBook. The new link comes from another polymer artist with a primitive bent, Ronna Weltman.

Extraordinary Extrusions

I’m gathering my tricks to teach an online class on Alison Lee’s Craftcast next Wednesday called Extraordinary Extrusions. I find polymer extrusions fascinating and have made it my mission to assemble the most easy-to-use and easy-on-the-joints equipment.

I’ll even share my bulging file of design ideas from sites around the world. Alison’s a terrific hostess and you’ll leave with secrets, links and videos. Join us. Sign up here.

    I love Ronna’s work, and that inlayed wooden bowl of yours is totally gorgeous!

      Jenny’s work is very Innovative and unusual. Makes a definitely COOL fashion statement.

      Cynthia: Your “Extraordinary Extrusions” sounds fabulous and I predict you’ll have a lot of very excited and happy students turning out wonderful new extruded pieces very soon.

          love your work, thanks for what you do for the polymer clay community. I subscribed to your class with Alison Lee on extrusion canes but I live in France and couldn’t stay up. Looking forward to the video recording.
