Over 500 Silk Screen Designs Available

It seems I can’t stop digging up fun and unusual designs to turn into silk screens.Β  I find I have a thrill for the hunt. This means I am gearing up for another sampler sale which will be held on my Facebook business page this time. I anticipate at least 50 new designs and only the most liked will make it into my Etsy shop, but all will be found for sale on my Facebook business page.Β  Check this album for all the available designs. Be sure to check my Facebook page or here on my blog for updates on the date and time of the Sampler Sale Event.

Here are some images of what new designs to expect in the Sampler Sale. I’ve gotten requests fro smaller designs that would be a better fit for earrings and beads. So hopefully I have hit the mark with some of these designs. πŸ™‚ Once I test them all for usability I will announce the Sampler Sale.

Friday’s Featured Artist: Janine MΓΌller

I saw this picture on Facebook and I was quite intrigued. So I headed over to Flickr to look at more of Janine’s work.Β  Talk about eye candy ! This is one talented lady. I love her use of color and organic design.

I supposed i you twisted my arm to choose a favorite I might say this one called Tiger Heart

But then there is a really good chance I might say it’s this one called Violas Garten

or perhaps these earrings becasue I adore ginkgo leaves πŸ™‚

You can browser through all of Janine’s pictures in her Flickr Gallery

Friday’s Featured Artist: Sonya’s Polymer Creations

This weeks featured polymer clay artist is Sonya’s Polymer Creations and she has quite the flair for organic design, which I especially like when it comes to jewelry. For example, this first piece named Cleopatra’s Bubblebath is so simple, yet it has such depth. It makes me think of sea urchins.

 

This next piece is called Driftwood. Love the connections.

I especially like this pair of earringsΒ  called Winter Mood. The detail is incredible.

Fiona Abel-Smith: Friday Featured Artist (on Saturday)

Sorry I am a day late with this post. The orders for the Helen Breil Silk Screens overwhelmed me just a bit. πŸ™‚ I am going to be very bust this weekend.

This weeks artist makes the most amazing boxes I have ever seen ! Her name is Fiona Abel-Smith and I am in awe. They are entirely polymer clay ! !

Look at the details involved. Stunning ! Absolutely stunning !

Even the inside is finished with mokume gane. WOW!

Here is a picture of just the lid to one of her boxes. I can not even imagine how many hours of work this took to complete just the lid.

Oh, and Fiona makes dragons and jewelry too. πŸ™‚

Daniela D’Uva: AKA Alkhymeia

I am honestly in awe of this featured artist and secretly hope to someday have even half her talent. πŸ™‚

Daniela D’Uva was born in Germany, but was raised in Italy, where she became an accredited goldsmith specializing in making jewelry. Some of Daniela’s favorite jewelry making supplies are things like copper wire, gemstones, glass beads and recycled items like broken mirrors or plastic bottles. Then she discovered polymer clay just 3 years ago and took to it like a duck to water !!!! Her style is so unique and creative. I love the mix of heavy gauge wire, the wire wrapping and polymer clay. Like the rest of us, she appreciates the versatility, consistency and range of colors that polymer clay provides.


Some of her other designs-



Check out Daniela’s project in the Orange issue of From Polymer To Art !!!!

Smooshers Feature Artist: Dawna Sharp

Dawna is a new found Facebook friend and a fellow Smoosher. We basically met when she decided to buy a camera from me. πŸ™‚ It really touched my heart that she felt so happy having that camera and that it would help her fulfill a long time dream of taking photos as perhaps more than just a hobby. This is my favorite of her pictures so far. She titled it “Here’s looking at you kid”.

Okay, so it’s not clay LOL but look at that face πŸ™‚

Dawna does make great jewelry and these are just a few of my favorite pieces.

Smooshers Featured Artist: Gaia Copia

I am proud to present Emily of Gaia Copia. πŸ™‚

Her work is so jewelry unique. I guess you would put it in the mixed media category. I love that she uses the hammered, textured copper and fancy wire wrap in conjunction with the polymer clay. To me it has an funky-organic-medieval feel and I LOVE it !!!!
