Margit Bohmer chops, scratches, carves, gouges, and mutilates her polymer beads in the most delightful and enthusiastic ways. Her colors are exuberant.

“I especially like to make simple, rustic beads and ethnic-inspired jewelry. Krobo beads from Ghana and the gorgeous jewelry from Tibet are wonderful sources of inspiration,” she says.

Margit’s DaWanda shop and her Flickr pages show how her color palette has remained constant over the last few years while her techniques have gotten bolder and more energetic.

Have a bold, energetic and enthusiastic weekend!

    Very interesting story. I followed a few links after I Googled Krobo beads and saw a video on how they are made and read many stories on their manufacture also. These beads are recycled glass from bottles, jars, broken windshields etc. Thanks for the impetus to do the search and learn something today. Margit’s beads are interesting too, but I really wanted to see the source of her inspiration.

        That is, by far, some of my favorite clay carving. There are so many things I could point out that I like, but it would be shorter to say that I like it all.
