How I spent 2020

Julie Eakes goes rogue in 2020 with bright, funky earrings on PolymerClayDaily.com

It’s 2020 so why be predictable? Bet you didn’t guess the maker of these funky dangles.

North Carolina’s Julie Eakes creates photo mosaics and silk road patchwork and 3D dolls. She even dipped her brush into gelli prints. So it’s not surprising that she’s wandered off the reservation again with these layered cane slice earrings.

“Kinda crazy, like this year,” she says. Why not?


A PCD reader took me to task for my casual comment about “going off the reservation” in this post and she is right. My apologies for using an insensitive and racist phrase. As I told her, it stings to be taken to task…but in a good way and I thanked her for making me more aware. 

High voltage color

Little bits of high voltage colors on a slab on PolymerClayDaily.com

We’ve gotten ho-hum about slabs. Make a base, add some bits, press in, cut out. Yeh, yeh.

With high voltage colors and neatly stacked bits in a controlled composition, Australia’s Linzy (graciefaceau) makes us look again. Her site isn’t ready yet and her shop opens this weekend. Now she’s got our attention!

Further exploration shows that the slab is a collaboration. The slab is from Linzy and the colors are from Katherine at Hellorobbo. Recipes for her latest palette go on sale this weekend.

Simple, modern polymer

This simple “Commits” necklace from UK’s Caroline Casswell exudes summer fun and playfulness.

Caroline admits that her inspiration comes from the famous Kapitza Studio. Their sharp geometrics influence modern design and give us wake-up colors for a Monday.

No clasps, just bright beads spaced out on a buna cord. Simple becomes sophisticated.
