  • Beautiful Polymer Clay and Beaded Jewelry

    I found another talented artist on Flickr, Bridget Derc. She makes beautiful jewelry from polymer clay and beading.

For those of you who don’t know Isaiah Zagar, he is a Philadelphia artist who creates mosaic murals on walls and storefronts. Most of his murals are in […]
