Polymer Clay Jewelry by In-Boon
At Hometown Holidays, the Memorial Day weekend street fair in downtown Rockville, Maryland, I encountered the polymer clay jewelry of Wiwat Kamolpornwijit, an award-winning Thai artist working in Alexandria, Virginia, who’s doing business as In-Boon Jewelry. I’ve been fascinated by the colors, plasticity, and techniques used in polymer clay (especially in its ability to create complex miniature designs through stretching, ala millefiori) so I always have my eye out for it and delighted when I encounter a master of the material. Kamolpornwijit is certainly among those artists who has mastered the material as well as the design, creating several lines of beautiful jewelry. He allowed me to photograph several pieces to share with you and if you’re interested, you’ll want to visit www.kamolpornwijit.com.
