One of my first polymer earring designs was created from a circle, cut in half and repositioned in an unusual way. The interest of the piece was in the “twist” or the “crank” that happened in the repositioning.
Trained as a landscaper designer I see stripes all around me and am inspired by the striations in stone, trees and plant material. As a quilter I am drawn to fabrics with stripes (and dots and geometric patterns).
This technique uses polymer clay much like one would use watercolor. It is a more painterly approach that gives depth to each piece of jewelry.
