Because polymer clay comes in hundreds of colors and you can mix infinitely more, it’s common for polymer artists to utilize the full range of colors. Linda Brooks, however, prefers to use subtle, muted metallic tones with occasional bursts of rich color. There’s a heartiness to these subdued colors, though, that makes them feel more tangible somehow. More tactile. The slightly irregular and jaunty shapes here are very much reminiscent of the current contemporary earring trend, but without any of the sweetness. These earrings have a depth and substance that I love.
If you’ll have a wander through Linda’s Instagram, you’ll see a consistent color pallette of antique gold, black, gray all done in shapes that are surprisingly complex in their simplicity.

I love that...
Linda has a very cohesive color palette through her entire range of work. I always know her work when it comes into my feed. They’re simultaneously simple and wearable yet have a hearty richness that somehow feels opulent.
