I'm particularly enamored of Cynthia Del Guidice's work with fused plastic bags. Who'd have thought that such a common, disposable and earth destroying material could be reconsidered into such soft, sculptural and feminine jewelry?!
And her exploration with patina's is the perfect example of how surface treatment can totally change the look of a piece. Claudia has finished her copper earrings in bright metal, verdigris and deep black and they each have a character all their own even though they share the same simple form.
Let's see if Michelle and Paige have collected some tasty Eye Candy this weekend. I know that Christine has a big, exciting announcement that you won't want to miss!
