Watching Australia’s Rocky Antonio (RockyBeads) assemble her compositions with little bits of clays and canes is soothing and deeply relaxing. She works on small objects (this ring dish is one of her larger items).
With judicious use of color and attention to placement, she keeps her small items from becoming too sweet or insignificant.
The muted purple background of this shallow dish holds all the bright colors together and the dimension adds interest. Watch her paint on polymer on Facebook or work with a needle tool on Instagram.
Rocky’s Matryoshka dolls from 2012 on PCD still tickle me (she built them on lockets).
