“Do you know the moment at night — right before you fall asleep? That’s when I sometimes get the best ideas. Last night — out of nowhere — that very detailed picture of an earring design popped up right in front of my inner eye….so I had to try it today. They’re in the oven right now,” said Bettina Welker in describing a recent polymer epiphany.
Georg Dinkel caught this photo of Bettina wearing her new creations at the recent Staedtler Fimo Symposium in Paris. Bettina’s cutout shapes are heavily textured and often stacked or moving.
She calls her series The Place In Between and perhaps this week your best ideas are hiding in some overlooked spot, just waiting for you to relax and accept them.
There’s a free Pin-to-Pendant Converter tutorial on Bettina’s revamped site in case your customers, like hers, want to wear their jewelry in various ways.
