FOLLOWFRIDAY: Kristin Vaughn

Kristin Vaughn assembles her fabric canes for her huge audience on PolymerClayDaily.com

Iowa’s Kristin Vaughn (ShopHillsideStudio) boasts about her booming polymer business. If you’ve been tracking canes that repeat in a fabric-like method you’ve probably ended up at Kristin’s site. You’ve got to have a vision, an eye-pleasing palette, and scads of small graphic canes to make this work. Kristin has all of that.

She’s been working with polymer for 6 years and has a whopping 141,000 followers. I can’t fathom that. Kristin welcomes your mucking about in her site where you can watch her assemble these babies.


It’s Friday! Consider this post an invite to join us for our StudioMojo Happy Hour on Saturday. I’d love to pop my flashy, chatty roundup of the best in polymer in your inbox. Come dish with us.

Nadege Honey swaps blades for a change on PolymerClayDaily.com

Is your wavy blade feeling neglected? Is it calling to you from the back of a crowded drawer?

UK’s Nadege Honey gives ho-hum stripes some zig-zag pizazz by setting the straight blade aside and using a wavy one instead as she creates a slab of pattern.

Not rocket science but a welcome change.

Your artist’s eye is probably drawn to leaves at this time of year. If so, you’ll want to spend some time on our pick for FOLLOWFRIDAY: Byunamofficial

At the end of a wild google goose chase, it turns out that these sophisticated luminous earrings are created by Una. She’s a 15-year old who creates in Sweden. She started with origami in 2015 and gravitated to polymer. Una wants to be the next Chanel.

The juxtaposition of the irregular shapes cleverly mimics leaves falling. The striated patterns add to the leafy effect and she envisions them in a range of metallic sheens and colors. You’ll want to follow this young designer.


In this week’s StudioMojo, we’ll discuss an intriguing theft, a no-fail glue, a must-try class. I keep my ear to the ground and my nose to the grindstone for your Saturday morning enjoyment. Join the party.
