Polymer Clay and Wire Jewelry by JM Syron and Bonnie Bishoff

By on Tuesday, February 14, 2017 6 Comments

JM Syron and Bonnie Bishoff are talented US based artists. They are known for their sculptural and functional art work. However, their sculptural style can also be seen in their polymer clay and  jewelry.  The polymer clay adds form and color while the wire provides the support, strength and connection.


They use the millefiori technique for their polymer clay work to cover all or some of the wire.  Also noteworthy is their polymer clay marquetry.  Beautiful and organic work!


These inspiring quotes come from them :

- patterns reflect the exuberance of creation
- form defines the beauty of purpose and motion
- possibility is the gift of existence

  1. OMG, I cannot believe that this is all clay. I thought it was paper or patterned tin when I saw the images without reading the post

  2. Wow! Simply Wow!!

    I've heard of Bonnie many times in the polymer clay world and having clicked on the links I've suddenly been transported into a world where my mouth remains permanently open in awe.

    Gorgeous! Inspiring! I was stunned by the furniture as well.

    What confuses me is your statement that says they use the Millefiori technique to cover the wire. As I associate millefiori with the 'million flowers' I'm not sure what you're meaning here. Could someone chime in and let me know?

    1. Millefiori does indeed mean million flowers and applied to glasswork. But today polymer clay artists do use roughly the same technique only it is more commonly called caning.

    2. Ah!! I was looking for canes of a million flowers instead of just canes..
