Simple or complex

It’s Memorial Day in the US. These red, white, and blue polymer flipflop earrings from Texas’ Paula Kennedy are the perfect accessory for the local parade.

Paula Kennedy decides how simple or serious she wants to be on PolymerClayDaily.com

Paula usually creates much more intense and complex projects (like this silver and polymer micromosaic feather necklace) but on a day like today, it’s hard to resist cute.

You decide how serious or silly, how simple or complex you want your work to be.

Feathers float you through the week

Debbie Crothers combines patterns for upcoming feather classes in the US on PolymerClayDaily

These patterned feathers on Instagram from Australia’s Debbie Crothers will take you right over the mid-week hump.

Debbie loves her veneers and surface treatments so I’m betting that she’s made herself a stash of veneers for source materials.

Assembling them in perfect balance like this is no quick project but they’re worth the effort. The occasional splice on the edge and bend in the shape gives each one distinct look.

On Facebook, Debbie says she’s refining her methods and these are prototypes for her sessions at Clay Out West from September 30 to October 3 in Albuquerque. Registration opens February 1.

Debbie offers a few clever hints about her methods in her blog post today.

Tickled by feathers

Hart on PCDaily

Looks like a matchy Monday, doesn’t it? This feather cane from Deb Hart of Texas comes in bright blues and greens that look good on PCD.

Deb’s an expert at feather canes and you’ll see them in most every color on her Facebook page, Pinterest board, and Instagram.

She sells her feathers as raw canes and uses them in her finished southwest jewelry designs that you can see on Etsy and learn about on CraftArtEdu. Deb is someone to follow if feathers tickle your fancy.
