PolymerClayforaCause's Shop Announcement :
Polymer Clay for a Cause was started in honor of the owner's daughter, Cortney.
Artist Bio: My name is Deborah Barron, and I am a self-taught metalsmith. All that you see here is my fault. I thought of the design, and set about making it from raw materials.
Watercolor in graphic design has become very trendy the last couple of years, many websites and incredible designers are using this style and taking it to another level. Even knowing the technique is important in this kind of design, is more about creativity and experimentation. You will learn how to use the Art History Brush and combine it with watercolor custom brushes to create a nice background header image and more. Let's get it started!
Program: Adobe Photoshop CS4

Trends.... as a designer we are always looking for what will be the next big trend and my thought always goes to if this is something I can design around. Many of my items are more of what I like to wear, how do you design .... do you make something that will be seen as trendy and hot or do you design what makes you happy ? I will be interested in your reponses !
In the mean time, here is what the fashion trends are lining up for Fall 2010 ....
Bold Statements, Mixed Media
Big, bold statement jewelry – whether it’s a chunky cuff, an oversize opulent cocktail ring, or this season’s front runner, the “Statement Necklace” – this is the season for size.
These trend designs for Fall 2010 jewelry are fabulous when focused on mixed media.
The more unique the mix, the better the look.
I always look forward to the release of the NICHE awards, the work is always worth the view and inspires me to new highs in my designing.
Here are a few of my favorites....enjoy then pop over and view the rest.... which one did you like most and why ? (hint...when you go over to main link..click on picture to get full view, then scroll through the slidelike show to see every detail)

Ametrine : Another example for Ametrine from the brazil/bolivian border. This one is more closed to the amethyst with only small Citrine sections and still one of my favorite pieces in this new design.
