Seattle’s Anne Dofelmier (baublehaus) loves woman’s best friends in the form of earrings that are a tribute to Basset Hounds, Dachshunds, Pit Bulls, Greyhounds, Standard Poodles, Toy Poodles, Boston Terriers, French Bulldogs, Labrador, German Shepards, Australian Shepards, Cocker Spaniels, and Schnauzers. Her love is obvious.
Anne admits that she entertains herself in the studio by singing dramatically. “The problem is I often forget that you can see into the studio from the street,” On more than one occasion someone walking their dog has stopped to watch the show.
That show extends beyond dogs to atomic and retro designs in kitschy colors.
Many of Kristen Oxtoby’s designs (These Hollow Hills) rely on extruded clay laid down together to make corrugated shapes. Here, ball chain dangles from the bottom of her Farrah earrings. And in her Circa series, the polymer strings wind around circle cutouts.
Kristen’s pieces are big and bold. She calls it “…a ’60s-inspired aesthetic with a 90’s soundtrack.”
This North Carolina artist makes collections that have attitude. Get the full effect on her Instagram.
Mixing polymer clay beads topped with delicate 3D petals and leaves, New York’s Jennifer Morris crafts romantic jewelry. She adds vintage findings, filigree, rhinestones and fabrics to heighten the retro effect.
Jennifer gives her pieces playful poetic descriptions that win you over to her bohemian worldview. What a romantic way to begin your week.
