Polina Szucs-Foteva - Polymer Embroidery

Project One is a pair of earrings. Created in shades of blue, it resembles an enchanted flower garden glowing in the night.

Project Two is a folklore inspired pendant. It unites the elegance of the female silhouette and the beauty of the traditional Hungarian floral motifs.

Polina Foteva - My name is Polina Foteva and I am a Bulgarian polymer clay artist based in Budapest, Hungary. My adventure with polymer clay started around 2010. Of course I fall in love with the medium, who wouldn't? I was constantly experimenting with techniques, textures, colors, you name it! I felt like a little kid who discovered a good book and dived in it's endless world. Until I found the embroidery technique. Then my heart and soul were stolen. I embraced the technique, shaped it in my own liking and made sure I perfect it. Now I am here to share my knowledge :).
