Unique and colourful
The artists at EditionUniques use many different materials. All of them use polymer clay, an extraordinary modelling compound that can be mixed to millions of colours, can accept very fine detail and has permanent strength and solidity once fired under controlled conditions.
Silver for accent or substance
Silver - both 99.9% pure 'fine silver' and sterling silver - may be used either as an accent or to make up the whole piece. The fine silver is moulded from a clay-like paste, and then fired to just below the melting temperature of silver to burn out the clay element. The silver may be gilded or patinated with special chemicals to create colours that emphasise the details of the shapes.
Stones for sparkle and shine
Amethyst, pearl, turquoise - these are just a few of the natural gem stones that can be included to enhance the final piece. Some artists use the stones to enrich the clay components, while in other jewellery the gems are the main event.
Beads, bangles and brooches
There is no limit to what can be made out of polymer clay. Its strong, colourfast and lightweight nature makes it easy to wear. It is especially good for earrings, where weight is so important.
Coloured by commission
You can buy from stock from all the artists, and they will also make pieces from their current collections to suit your particular preference for colour, size or style. You can meet them in person at the Artists Open House, 6/7 or 13/14 October 2012, or find out more about them and their approaches here.
