Malodora is making me reevaluate my strong position about jewelry from precious items. Malodora's jewels, made of polymer clay, have a lot of thought and careful construction behind each piece. It takes a lot to move jewelry made from this medium into art but these make the transition.
The shop on Etsy is http://www.etsy.com/shop/Malodora?ref=pr_shop. There are many styles of items too (skulls, puppies, abstract beads, alien flower earrings) that are worth a look.
|Micromosaic brooch- I love micromosaics, and there are not many modern jewelers making them.|
|Another, more conventional, micromosaic.|
|Braaaaaaaaaains and human hair, for when you get your zombie on.|
|Crab ring- Malodora can has a cute! (I could not help myself.)|
