February Clay in Print

It looks like February/Spring are big for ceramic beads in publications!

First the spring issue of Stringing Magazine features Gaea, Artisan Clay and Jangles in the Beads to Buy section. Diane Hawkey has a lovely necklace titled "Cherry Blossoms" and Michelle Mach's necklace project titled "A Little Birdie Told Me" combines my Chinook Jewelry sheet music pendant and porcelain bead cap with an Earthenwood bluebird and ceramic branch.

Melanie of Earthenwood gets even more exposure with her own project, "Nesting Owl" with her owl, nest and leaf beads combined into a necklace.

Last but not least, Gaea has her own project, "Many Shades of Love". The gallery sections are also full of ceramic beads in bracelets and earrings...more Gaea as well as Summers Studio in bracelets and a pair of earrings by Marie Voyer-Cramp using my Chinook Jewelry zinnia charms.

Bead Unique Magazine also has a few ceramic beads included this issue. Diane Hawkey has another project, "Spring Dreaming" using her ceramic heart bead and Artisan Clay and Golem Studio are also represented. See any other BOC members in print? Leave us a comment so we don't miss them!
