Polymeri Online 26.3.13 | Butterflies cluster, Polymer clay knitted masks, Beautiful scrap jewelry and Fusion design team

Gloria's Butterflies Cluster
While looking at the ACC 2013 show presenters list, which took place in Atlanta at the same time with Synergy conference, I stumbled upon a polymer clay artist name that was new to me (and I think I know most of them), Gloria Danvers. The piece shown as a thumbnail next to her name was a lovely butterflies canes necklace. According to her she is using link chains to form a bib, and then cover it with butterfly wings. It is her interpretation of the way butterflies clustering on trees during migration.
I have been in the ACC show several times before, when Synergy took place in Baltimore and it is a must show for every artist in any medium.

Sari's polymer clay masks
Sari Lin from Israel is a long time friend and polymer clay colleague. I had the pleasure of being her teacher for several technique classes and we continued our polymer clay friendship through the internet and on Facebook. In her recent creations she is playing with faux knitting to create polymer clay masks. Here is another version of masks in a different color/technique.
Sari is mad about pens which are always on demand among her friends, family and customers and loves to play with different techniques. Even though she is dealing with multiple sclerosis for many years, she is choosing the more colorful side of life and found polymer clay to be her best chosen medium. One of her recent creations is a LaserCut bracelet after taking Jana Benzon's workshop recently given in Israel.

Tanya's Jewelry

Tanya Mayorova is from Russia is only 25 years old. Her flickr gallery is full of goodies, I had a difficult time choosing which picture to show next to her name. She is working with polymer clay and scrap booking, plan to start to learn to draw. Her techniques are mixed - millefiori, beautiful use of scrap and more.

Fusion in Polymer

One of Tanya's favorites on Flickr is vix @fusion, mother (jean) and daughter (vix) fusion team playing with materials and techniques. In this photo they are presenting polymer clay rings on twisted copper wire bracelet. Fusion jewelry designs are handcrafted and created from various craft mediums such as polymer clay, semi precious gemstones, wire and kumihimo braiding techniques.

It's passover holiday in Israel right until next week, family time and resting, always a pleasure.
Have a great week!
