Serving up summer

Rikki McDermott's muse wanted to play so she did on PolymerClayDaily.com

Rikki McDermott’s brain (byrikki_handmade Jewellery) requested a break from planning and production in her workspace in Scotland.

Turns out, her resting brain is ready for summer. She repeated to herself, “Make something for fun.” as she slammed together her scrap cane ends – neons, pastels, monochrome, and a whole lotta random madness into one big happy cane.

It shows, doesn’t it? Be nice to your muse, your mojo. She won’t steer you wrong.

Playful leaves

Meisha Barbee plays with leaves and mokume gane on PolymerClayDaily.com

California’s Meisha Barbee has been having some summer fun. You might not recognize these leaves as hers but she’s pushing her boundaries.

Meisha uses mokume gane veins interspersed with textured leaf parts imprinted with the tread on her shoe.

Go back on her Instagram and you’ll see the decorations for her summer glow-in-the-dark party.

Meisha’s having fun! Do you have some fun built into your schedule this week?

Playful experiments

Alessia Bodini weaves strips of her favorite scraps into a brooch on PolymerClayDaily

A browse through the photos of Italy’s Alessia Bodini is like skipping through her brain.

Alessia experiments and turns the pieces that speak to her into designs that please her. She shapes and reshapes until her eye is happy.

Alessia Bodini's earrings orbit a center bead on PolymerClayDaily

The blue extrusions were just her colors so she wove them into a brooch. The earrings are pleasantly off kilter. Thumb through her Flickr and Facebook photos to remind yourself how it is to play.
