Polymer with grit

Marisa Winston makes earrings for women with grit on PolymerClayDaily.com

These pale iridescent curls of textured polymer form earrings in the summer collection of North Carolina’s Marisa Winston.

Her shop named Ostrea means ‘oyster’ in Latin. “Everyone is familiar with the phrase ‘no grit, no pearl,’ but my experience has taught me how true this really is,” Marisa says.

The name is a reminder of the power we have to transform life’s grit into resilience, inner beauty, and strength. Her earrings are made for “women with grit.”

String theory

Jan Montarsi updates his pearl/inks recipes into a new String Theory on PolyerClayDaily.com

Ohio’s Jan Montarsi has updated his pearl mix tutorials with this String Theory pendant. I found it here from 2013 but the tutorial has disappeared.

Not to worry, Jan has come up with even better inks/pearl clay mixes for a luminous effect. Plus, he makes some very good tools for precise quilt pattern cuts here.

If you like subtle glitz and shine in your work, catch up with Jan and his newest theory.
