Can’t make it to the American Craft Council Show in Baltimore? Then prowl online to see what’s new. Kathleen Dustin showed one of her new necklaces on Facebook to tempt us. Strong shapes and simple design make a big impact.
Mary Filapek and Lou Ann Townsend make the most of color and simple shapes too. Googling around I found some of their most recent work that centers on circles floating on a solid color captured in silver bezels. Check here too.
There’s a surprising amount of polymer at the show but these busy artists aren’t very good at updating their web sites. You’re more likely to find their newest works on the photo sites.

Can’t wait for ACC! love seeing all the eye candy. Hope to do that show one day myself. I always want to go an meet some of the artists I don’t know, but they are always so busy! It’s a great show both for the artists and those coming to look and buy.
Both necklaces are gorgeous – but I LOVE how the bold colors and simple shapes in Kathleen’s necklace make a HUGE statement.
