Dark iridescence

The long thin shapes of these iridescent purple and blue feathers from Natalya Aleksandrova form a most graceful and stunning Midnight Crown bracelet.

Natalya Aleksandrova's feathers glow with dark, magic on PolymerClayDaily.com

The bracelet will be available as part of the  “Night Time Magic” show of the Soul Sisters United group on Facebook on June 3-4.

Natalya’s textured feathers glow as their narrow shapes fit comfortably on the wrist. Look more closely on Facebook.

Picarello’s magic

There’s something alluring about the graduated color of the side beads which are interspersed with silver discs on this polymer clay necklace from California’s Julie Picarello. It’s part of her winged design series that gives a sense of movement and motion.

Julie has also posted pictures of her Bead Dreams entry (a winner in my book) and some new primitive, asymmetrical designs.

Julie’s technique is another lovely variation on the magic/mokume bead that’s been gaining popularity (see yesterday’s post). Have a magic weekend.
