Geodes from SusanaLand

Susana Martinez created her own land during the pandemic on

New York’s Susana Martinez popped up in the feed today wearing a big bold necklace she made for a Santiago event.

I went on the prowl to get to know her. She had been in the fashion industry for over 20 years when the pandemic forced her to create a land of her own, SusanaLand.

It houses her jewelry collections, her fashion line, and even showcases her mother’s hand-woven wares.

Her mokume gane meets geodes meets resin in a wonky, cheery jumble of styles perfect for today.

Reduced obsolescence

Jude Radwanski (firefly art jewellery) resists obsolescence and so do we all!

Saskatchewan’s Jude Radwanski (Firefly Art Jewellery) scratches and scribes polymer jewelry as she works to create jewelry that enhances the designs of clothing manufacturers and retailers.

“Polymer clay is extremely durable and suits my commitment to reduced obsolescence,” she says defiantly.

No obsolescence here at PCD either. I’ve skittered around the globe and across the country, checking in with polymer friends around the globe in a burst of post-pandemic energy. Were you beginning to worry? Nah, I’m fine and ready to settle in at the computer after one more trip west this month. 

Plenty of pretties that you need to see! Stay tuned.  CT
