Art Day – Panda Pendants

I decided to take a little stroll thru the pages of Etsy and came up with some very fun and diverse panda baubles.

From Fussycat, this is a sculpted polymer clay pendant.  I actually thought it was glass until I read the description.

From Glamourgirlbymel, comes this interesting collaged bracelet.

Last, but definately not least, comes a collage of a more modern nature from EuphoriaDoria.

Sexy Saturday…Zhao Bandi Edition

This is an old bit of fashion info, but it still seems silly to me.  Zhao Bandi is a Chinese fashion designer who put on a show during Chinese Fashion Week in 2007.  All of his pieces were panda-inspired.  Somehow in the midst of all the sequins and boas, Chinese officials were very offended and decided to create laws prohibiting the demeaning use of panda imagery.

Wanna work with pandas?

China is looking for volunteers to help during the height of zoo-visiting season.  Article is here.  This would be an amazing opportunity for anyone who qualifies.

“China’s main breeding station has issued a call for 30 volunteers from around the world to help to care for its pandas during the Chinese new year holidays when a flood of tourists is expected.

The temporary recruits to the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, in Sichuan province, will be welcome to work with the pandas between February 14 — the first day of the Year of the Tiger — and February 28, which marks the end of the lunar new year festival.

To be eligible, any would-be volunteer worker must be aged between 18 and 45 and have a college degree. Fluent spoken English would also be considered a bonus.”

Pandas – Warcraft Style
