Heather Powers calms our jitters with her Hibiscus Buds, part of the class offerings in her 3-day Inspired by Nature retreat in Michigan this October.

Her delicate polymer flower buds hug their petals around themselves. Topped off with leaves and wrapped with wire, they become pendants or charms to be mixed with an array of metals and bead components and gathered into autumn treasures.

Heather is a busy blogger, author and artist with sites on illustration, earrings and more. Her Art Bead Scene interactive blog has been around since 2007, celebrating the work of a group of jewelry designers who use art beads of all materials in their work.

Heather's sites are full of polymer creations, all inspired by nature in a way that reminds us to slow down and cherish the beauty around us. (These Midnight Garden Wafer Beads are a summer favorite.)

    I've been a fan of Heather's polymer work for years.  I have a tiny collection of her earlier bead work, which hangs in a special corner of my worktable.  (Okay, they're BURIED in a special place on my worktable, but to be fair, so is everything else!)  I also love her book illustrations–charming, adorable (but not cloying), just wonderful stuff.  Congrats, Heather!!

      I've loved Heather's work since she first got started. Her natural colors have really struck a chord with me. I've seen these hibiscus beads around lately and appreciate how fresh and original they are.
