Festive bohemian wraps

France’s Christine Pecaut (chifonie) stacks a collection of intense red focal pieces and companion beads onto spirals of tube-covered memory wire for a festive bohemian look.

Here’s a closer view of how her bracelets wrap arms with color and patterns. What a great way to use a favorite focal and surround it with pops of colors.

This Saturday’s StudioMojo newsletter will ease us into the holiday week with a celebration of what we’ve done this year. Pats on the back all around and a look at where polymer will take us in 2020. Come join us.

Polymer circles and tubes covered in an assortment of lively patterns are folded over memory wire (or something similar) that spirals itself into a bracelet.

The patterns bounce around and stack on top of each other in the most satisfying way to bring you a happy Monday treat.

MacLeod’s new multi-media designs

Sharon MacLeod has resurfaced with some stunning new bracelet designs on Crafthaus and on her new Etsy site. It’s an innovative and inspired use of materials.

Sharon explains, “Working with an unexpected combination of materials, I create jewelry that starts with my own graphic art that I print on thin paper, which is then meticulously laminated to various sizes of small tubing, and then assembled with a variety of materials including polymer clay, glass, metal, rubber and plastic.”
