Roberts’ New Life Pin

Roberts_9_09Linda Roberts is a talented artist working mostly in beads – those teeny, tiny ones that tax every bit of my limited patience!  She also creates in polymer clay, and I found two photos of metal clay work.  I’m not sure if she’s a relative newcomer to metal clay, or if she just hasn’t shared her photos, but either way, this piece blew me away.  I love the graceful shape and the way the gold and the gemstone are used to accent the piece perfectly.  This piece is for sale on Etsy here.

There are several places online where you can see more from Linda.  Check out her Web site, her blog, her Etsy store and her Flickr photostream.

I found this piece by using Tag Galaxy, a super-cool site where you plug in keywords and what’s returned is a 3D “planet” filled with photos from Flickr. Using your mouse, you can spin the sphere and check out the random selection of photos matching your keywords.  I love this site when I’m feeling directionless in my search for metal clay art to feature.  Enjoy!
