Busy with Beadstyle
I had an email from BeadStyle magazine this morning about their latest issue with a rather pretty little bracelet in the header. Geez, I thought … that could be or should be polymer. Turns out, yep, it’s mostly polymer. And it’s from a favorite and all too busy polymer artist, Christi Friesen. Here is a close up of the bracelet’s beads below.
Christi has certainly been busy! She wrote an article on creating the look of ice and snow in polymer which you’ll find in our next issue of The Polymer Arts as well as continuously adding new products to her retail line, a couple of which are in our Shimmer and Shiny product review in this upcoming issue. And she’s still been flitting about the world, teaching classes and spreading the love of polymer. You can see more of Christi’s work at www.CForiginals.com
If you haven’t checked out Beadstyle magazine, they do often have beautiful designs that could be translated for polymer so could be a source of inspiration for you polymer beaders. And of course, if you don’t have a subscription yet and want to get the latest Polymer Arts issue when it comes out this coming week, go to our site at www.thepolymerarts.com and choose Buy/Subscribe to get your subscription or pre-order your Winter 2012 Shimmer and Shine issue.
