Minimalist polymer

Nicole’s (NiQui) simple nautically striped polymer beads on a string combine a look of weight with a sleekness of design – a playful modern bolo with visual steadiness.

She has a talent for communicating with very few materials as in her Sunshine in the Dark and Skyscraper series of pendants.

Thanks to Margit Böhmer for pointing us to the page.

    Wonderful – so refreshing! Clean and clear and uncluttered…

      Simple designs are sometimes the most difficult to execute because there is nowhere to hide the flaws. For that reason, for me, they are the most satisfying, too. Bravo, Nicole, for giving us excellent examples of flawless simplicity at its best.

        I’m also oohing and sighing over her fabulous work. Interesting how those of us who gravitate to primitive and ethnic love her beautiful counterpart to our aesthetic.

          I was thinking the same thing Ronna (and Lynda ), as I wrote my comment. Thanks for saying it so eloqently. I could no more make Nicole’s work than I could fly to the moon, but oh, a part of me so wants to.

              I have spent the morning visualizing the new piece I am going to make. Pulling it together in my head, when I saw this. Ah ha, I thought… that is how I am going to make her arms. . Colorful stripes It all came together in that moment.

              Purused more of her gallery, saw White pendant with blend, and fell over in a faint, it is so beautiful. Pulling my self back up into my chair, I am overcome with joy to get to see pure perfection.
              Thank you for sharing her work.

                  I just want to echo what has been said before. Love the neatness, perfection and simplicity of this, and in all of your work for that matter.

                  And congratulations for being mentioned on PCD. Well deserved.
