Polymer Goddess


Ever since I discovered the clips from my light tent kit, I’ve been having fun taking photographs of my necklaces hanging from the clips. It’s a great way to show the front part of the necklace, especially if it has a pendant or dangles. A photo of this type of necklace laying down just doesn’t do it justice. I am experimenting with different ways to display my jewelry and the necklace is telling me, in a way, how it looks best.

As I was naming the file for this photo, I realized that this necklace didn’t have a name. Usually, when I’m creating a piece of jewelry, a story or name will start to be “born” based on what inspired me to create. This necklace was inspired by color and gold leaf, as in “wouldn’t it be way cool to make a rich Skinner blend with gold leaf over it and then cut it into dagger shapes for dangles?” And thus, this necklace fit for a “Polymer Goddess” was born.

    Beautiful necklace, Karen ! Love the Skinner blend colors and gold leafing. This necklace definitely looks better hanging………Hmmm, I don’t think my light tent kit came with clips..I’ll have to rig up something…

    Great necklace Karen! And a fantastic photo too. My light tent has clips and I’ve rarely been able to use them successfully, either the necklace is too heavy or I can’t stop the swinging. LOL

    Thanks Dora! There are little grommets on either side of the top. You could probably rig something up with wire. I put wire in the clips because I didn’t want to clip the clasp and damage it. Have fun!

    Thanks Libby! Yes, the swing factor. I got that, too, so I went and made a cup of tea and by the time I came back, the necklace had stopped swinging. And then I had a steaming cup of tea to sip while I took pictures. 😉 lol It does take awhile though if you’re taking photos of multiple necklaces!

    Karen every time I see your work I fall in love with it all over again. Have been healing a bad leg for many days and haven’t had a chance to visit during that time. What a treat to catch up with several wonderful entries all at once! Your beaded amulet and February’s BJP page are both fantastic!

    Thank you so much Acey for your very kind words. They’re much appreciated. I’m so sorry to hear about your leg. I’ve been so behind with my blog reading these days that I didn’t even know about it. Healing thoughts to you!

    Thanks Lynn!

    Thanks Steph!

    This is a gorgeous necklace. It makes me think of gilded peacock feathers.
