Bonnie Bishoff pins up potential pieces for her newest series on

As one reader commented, Maine’s Bonnie Bishoff’s pinned up work-in-progress has a little voodoo edge to it.

But mostly it’s a wonderfully smart way to figure out how a neck piece hugs the body. In what direction does your eye travel? Where do your eyes stop? What’s balanced? What’s not?

See how Bonnie has solved these riddles with the finished necklaces on her Instagram and website.

    Beautiful balance! And that is harder than it looks. Bonnie it must come naturally; I have always been an admirer. My experiment in this respect didn’t work so well, I once had the not-so bright idea of heat curing the clay to hold the shape – oops, the neck caught fire!
