#polymerartchallenge 3

A real quick one! My third selection for the #polymerartchallenge is a very sentimental Exif_JPEG_PICTUREone! These beads were made in Nepal and it was from these that the idea for the Samunnat Sari beads evolved. The Sari beads then became necklaces we sold in the very early days when we were truing to establish ourselves. We approached a Fair Trade organisation in Kathmandu several times and it wasn’t until we showed them our sari beads and our bahini beads that they took notice of us!  Making the sari beads using Makin’s extruders donated by Jen Tattam from Metalclay became aExif_JPEG_PICTURE standard part of our training for new ladies and the ladies still love making these when they get the chance.  My early versions are all sold now and I hope are still making their owners smile.

My nomination for today is an artist who constantly inspires, delights and shares: Genevieve Williamson

#polymerartchallenge 2

Here is my day two entry for the challenge.  The riotously coloured flowers are DSCN4682components of a few necklaces I made and were made in the colours of the Pantone  colours that Carolyn Good mixes each year. These were from last year and rather different to what I would normally combine but I loved them and wear them a lot. I have sold several of these to flamboyant women who tell me they feel happy whenever they wear them which is kind of what my jewellery is all about!

Today I would like to nominate: Carolyn Good because she is one of the people who inspire me! Her approach to her business, her creativity, her generosity and those wonderful Pantone mixes in Kato clay!!!

The rules: Post an image of your work on 5 days and each day nominate another person to participate.
