Introduction to Silver Clay — Kate’s Jewellery Making Blog. October 2009. Last week i didn't post the weekly blog, the reason was i had amazing 3 days on that weekend. i took a 3 days course with 2 Israeli men, both of them did the impossible - one of them is Eran Stern who quit a very promising job in Intel to fulfill his dreams, and the other one was Alon Ulman who a few years ago was on the verge of death when he twice survived a rare occurrence of a collapsed lung, he understood that if life had given him such clear boundaries he had to try and strech them a little. He started living life to the fullest and began competing to the "Iron Man" competition - sound crazy isn't it? Well, it's all about breaking limits and outstanding results, and these were inspiring full 3 days! Anyway, i came back with many ideas and lot's of thinking! Makes you think and understand what you have and try living better... so after some mind inspiration here is some polymer clay inspiration :) some cool links i found this week!

. . . ) - La mélancolie du caméléon. As we start again our journey around the polymer world, we head to the North - the season commands - right to Denmark to meet Eva Ehler. This young Web designer is fanatical about 3D. With her, even rendering the world must include this third dimension and this marks the original feature of her creations and is the recurrent theme for her inspiration. Add to this a great sense of humour and you will find yourself smiling while you flip through Eva’s porfolio. We can even find two animated films whose characters are made with polymer clay ! (and in pure Danish idiom… alas !) In order to access Eva’s polymer clay stuff, first click on the parchment named ‘Portfolio’ in the main screen then on the picture that looks like the opposite one. The good mood of Eva is certainly infectious because, after this Danish stop, Winter looks brighter to me.

She gave her collection to the Museum of Fine Arts Boston in 2006 and the Big Beads appear in the new book, Jewelry by Artists. The Big Bead series is still ongoing and both Dave and Steve create them, giving each bead character yet working toward a unified design. Steve says, “Dave’s beads play with opaque and translucent cane slices to add depth to the surface, while my beads are always opaque and very graphic, emphasizing a variety of textures contrasting baked and re-baked clay layers.” These early necklaces were all-polymer. Steve adds, “The clasp is a screw-type brass clasp, covered in clay, with a technique that Pier Voulkos used and taught.
Ford/Forlano have also posted a stunning picture of their latest Hydro-Top pins in which patterns in the formed metal (by metalsmith Maryanne Petrus) are repeated and expanded in polymer. STEOTCH: Fine New England Needleart. DIY Mother's Day Corsage: Felt Dahlia Flower Brooch - Holidash News.
