Inner Vision Studio
Inner Vision Studio founder Melanie Allan creates beautifully intricate polymer clay millefiori jewellery and art pieces.
Polymer clay millefiori is a technique of layering and manipulating the clay to build a picture or pattern into a large block with the picture running all the way through it (similar to rock candy). This block is then squeezed and carefully stretched into a long 'cane' to reduce the size of the picture inside. A slice of this picture cane is then baked hard to become a unique piece of wearable art. Intricate details in the patterns or pictures are kept and reduced down in size to become works of wonder for the viewer.
Based in Denmark and surrounded by forest, farm and sea, Melanie is able to have an intimate connection with nature which is expressed in the design and colour palette of her inspirational jewellery.
