Iconic earrings

Chloe at Blue Beetle Co looks for women to feature on her icon earrings on PolymerClayDaily.com

Chloe at Australia’s Blue Beetle Co creates this new line of earrings and imagines Malala staring out her window, with the twinkly sky behind her. She thinks of all the ways Pakastani activist Malala is changing the world.

In her search for women icons, Chloe has also created a line of Dolly Parton earrings too. She’s searching for a third icon. Your suggestions?


Wilkes’ wonky pendants

These wonky polymer clay chrysalis pendants from Lori Wilkes made me smile with their colorful, lopsided messages. And I read that she’s in a show in my area this weekend.

I’ve seen her scarabs in the June Bead and Button magazine, she’s had her wearable icons, story lockets, and windows in Belle Armoire. It’s about time I saw Lori’s work in person.

“Lately, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking of works that incorporate trash. Redeeming used up, throw away items is a great spiritual metaphor. It’s these stories and ideas that keep me working into the wee hours. Pushing for something new,” she says.

Here’s her blog and her flickr site. Have a lovely weekend.
