Mix and match polymer

Bushari on PCDaily

Cute, cute, cute. The pattern mix-and-match on Hila Bushari’s recent beads makes me want to pull out all the small remnants of my canes and make some big round beads.

Look at the ginghams and polka dots, stripes and little flowers! She combines the patterns and colors together in a trendy, carefree way that makes it look easy.

The translation of her post indicates that Hila leaned on her Israeli cane-whiz friends Marcia Tzigelnik and Ronit Golan to supplement her supply of canes.

Great idea! Recruit friends to bring their canes and have a bead making gathering. You make beads and do a little studio spring cleaning at the same time. It’s a win-win!

Win-winning reminder

While you’re playing (and win-winning), remember to extrude a few patterns and send snapshots of your creations my way. I’m collecting entries for a Spring Push competition and prizes. Attach your photo to an email and send it in. The deadline is April 16 with winners announced April 18.

Three winners will be featured on PCDaily and pictured in our next ad in The Polymer Arts magazine. Strut your stuff! Email your entry.

    Love these little beads with their combinations of color and pattern! I also love your idea of getting a group of people together for a bead making session using each other’s bits and pieces!

          These beads are just awesome! Wish I could just run and go get some right now, but since I can’t I may try out that “Spring Cleaning” idea of yours! Thanks for the post:)
