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.
You’ll have to fill me in on the name behind Spain’s Bisuteria Creativa (fi-mons). All I know is that Valentine’s Day is approaching and her slightly wonky hearts speak love to me. You too?
Her simple circles are delightful. Everything is stripped down to its essentials. Pure, simple and totally trendy.
Maryland’s Jeff Dever’s work gives us another mid-winter pick me up.
Jeff hand rolled over 150 petals in nine different hues and mounted them into the center blossom of his Eden’s Promise necklace. It’s surrounded by two dotted leaves and strung on a multi-strand cable.
The necklace was juried into the prestigious Wayne Art Center International Juried Exhibition of Fine Craft and will be on display in Wayne, PA until February 1.

These pieces from Germany’s Olja (@olgasmodeschmuck) look like men’s silk tie patterns.
There’s something very buttoned-down and crisp about the blue gradations intersected by gold lines. The bail is made from the same clay.
The polka-dotted element loosens up the tight geometry.
I couldn’t find much info on Olja. Care to comment with some details or links?
Germany’s Eva Thissen has moved to tone-on-tone flowers and birds for her latest series of pendants and earrings.
Eva finds that in stark white, the flowers and bird relief looks flat so she settled on this cream color. You have to move in close to see the exquisite detail on her small monochrome jewelry.
Eva calls herself an illustrator and considers these polymer illustrations. More illustrated goods on Etsy.
Ok, so there’s not much chance that most of us will make it to class but that doesn’t keep us from admiring the happy multicolor mix and wondering how she made it.
Was Dani thinking of the maps on her car’s dashboard when she created these? They make us think we’re going on an adventure!

Ireland’s Fiona Herbst has added this simple sophisticated pendant design to her holiday lineup. Colors like these are easy to wear with almost anything.
She knew she was onto something when the pendant was snatched up before it made it online.
Browse through Fiona’s Instagram to see what other crowd-pleasers she’s creating for the season.
Over at StudioMojo, we’ll be looking at more holiday offerings and I’ll share what my trainwreck of a week taught me.
The fabric-like textures, juxtaposed lines, and somber colors dangling from a chunky chain caught my eye. Yours too?
Learning how to do this intentionally is the trick that Loretta will be teaching.
The smooth rounded rock shapes on this necklace from Australia’s Michelle Sansonetti (Zedemee) have a Zen-like quality that appeals. Her swirls seem to calm in contrast with the weather maps that threaten.
Michelle credits Spain’s Fabi Ajates for inspiring her in a 2019 class. Isn’t it marvelous how polymer ideas bounce around the world? No boundaries, no weather disturbances, no politics. Hang on to that thought today.
