Smooshers featured Artist: Harrison Hollow Designs (AKA: Arlene Harrison)

The first thing that caught my eye when looking at Arlene’s work were the amazing mosaics ! She has a very good eye for color, composition and texture. And they are just so lovely. 🙂

Arlene also makes very pretty jewelry. I especially love the chunk heart pendants.

But most of all I adore the Plant Pokes !!!

Blog Finds For Nov 30th

I’ve really slacked off this week by not keeping my blog updated Thanksgiving week. Sorry to all my faithful readers 🙂

I was browsing through all my favorite blogs and found a bunch of yummy stuff to share.

A tutorial on stringing reversible tile bracelets

A beautiful orchid pendant

Some must see pendants the artist refers to as Landscapes

Check out the design on these pens. I am fascinated to know how it was done.

Some Awesome earrings !!

A couple adorable geometric pendants

A face canes in profile tutorial you can purchase from Alice Stroppel

And last but not least the Synergy2 Collaborative Tile Project and Contest hosted by the International Polymer Clay Association. Can you match all the artists names to their tile?

I am totally smitten with Julie’s carved designs. Especially this Lotus Pendants !

Mosaic Madness

I have seen so many beautifully done polymer clay mosaics. One artist in particular has covered everything from birdhouses to guitars. His name is Brian Helm, husband of Sarajane Helm.

Another great mosaic artist is Anke Humpert of Germany

And if you love mosaics with a mixed media flair try Laurie Mika’s colorful work.

Or perhaps you like your mosaics really, really tiny. This brooch was made by artist Jim Traversy.
