When I use very regular rounded beads, I prefer to use unconventional ways to connect them.
In this case, I completed the necklace with two glass grey beads.
I think it looks great on a white shirt!
As I said, I love polymer clay for its capacity to imitate nature.
But I also like it for its vibrant solid colors!
I decided to call my first autumn collection "Molecole" (I am Italian, you know...).
I really like this tecnique that allows you to create tridimensional patterns with a beautiful contrast with the background
More pieces to come...
I created these beads in my favourite tones: turquoise, copper and sand.
I loved polymer clay at first sight for its capacity to imitate nature. I tried with sea urchins and shells, but you can easily try with leaves and flowers of course.
This time, my inspiration come from a much smaller creature in nature. byteI found that one of the inspirations of Antoni Gaudì beautiful structures and patterns came from a mid '800 study that Ernst Haeckel made.
He patiently mapped and beautifully drawed a family of monocellular sea organisms called Radiolarians.
In his drawings, colors like coral, sand, turquoise dominate the scene.
I suggest you to look for the beautiful book "Art forms from the ocean" by Ernst Haeckel to check what I am talking about.
