Polymer Clay Bangles inspired by Ca’ d’ Zan

Polymer Clay Bangles inspired by Ca’ d’ Zan

My latest creation is a Polymer clay bangle made of 100% Premo clay. Done in the Mokume Gane technique, of impressing & slicing off thin layers. My inspiration was the John Ringling home in Sarasota Florida. Using the rich colors seen throughout the Venetian style mansion.


The Ringlings’ dazzling palatial mansion is a tribute to the American Dream and reflects the splendor and romance of Italy.
The homes name Ca’ d’Zan, meaning House of John, has 56 incredible rooms filled with art and original furnishings. With its Venetian Gothic architecture, the mansion is a combination of the grandeur of Venice’s Doge’s Palace, combined with the gothic grace of Cà d’Oro, with Sarasota Bay serving as its Grand Canal.  We are fortunate enough to live near the mansion, and take frequent boat trips that offer a birds eye view of the Palazzo.  It’s a lovely spot on the Bay, where we also see many Manatees.

The colors used throughout the home reflect
the Ringlings’ love of the circus, and the vibrant blues, greens, oranges & red hues, commonly seen in the circus world.
