I can never just stick to one thing, one art form, one medium, one job, one home. I am a wanderer with a wild, gypsy heart. However, I do return to certain themes in my artwork over and over again. When I received my New book; Ancient Modern, Polymer Clay and Wire Jewelry by Ronna Sarvas Weltman, I was reminded of some African inspired jewelry that I made a few years back. I have been inspired again to create some new pieces with that tribal, ethnic flair.
I have to pull out some of the polymer discs that I made during a very ambitious "disc" faze and combine them with stone, beach glass, sea shells, and polymer to create some new Summer pieces.
I will be sure to share my new creations with you but, in the meantime, here are a few of my vintage tribal pieces along with the African, Tagua Nut, necklace I purchased, that inspired the tribal theme which morphed into the disc thing, which somehow jumped over to graffiti and jellyfish.
