Polymer and pearls

Cynthia parties with pearls...and polymer...for today on PolymerClayDaily.com

I don’t quite know how I developed the habit, but I always wear polymer jewelry. Except for tomorrow.

I pulled these pearls out of a box of jewels from my mother. We didn’t always (ok, never) agreed on politics but I know Ruth would approve of my wearing her pearls tomorrow. They may not be real. Who cares? There’s a woman in the White House!

My earrings will be polymer…maybe from Elise Winters or Tory Hughes or some other artist who didn’t live to see today but would enjoy the festivities. I’m sure I can rifle through my collection of Ron Lehocky hearts and find something for a patriotic occasion. Wear something celebratory and join the polymer and pearls party.

Taming pandemic hair

Do you have pandemic hair? My longer hair keeps flying into my mouth and fighting with my mask and glasses. So I keep looking for barrettes and clips to keep my mane under control. Of course, I want them embellished fashionably with polymer.

These barrettes and clips from France’s Del Roussel show us how to tame stray strands with style.

Del’s patterns are crisp and summery. And these findings are perfect for using up scraps. A small project idea to start your week.
