Wearable BOC Clay – Intro post

Please Welcome Jessica Sharrah to the BOC Blog Team.  She will have a monthly post and tells all about it in her introduction below.  We are so pleased to have you Jessica!!

Many, I dare think MOST, ceramic bead artists began making beads in addition to plates, cups, and bowls. My journey is quite different. I began creating ceramic beads and did not even attempt to make a mug until a couple of years after I had a kiln. I am completely self-taught. I sell both ceramic beads and components and finished jewelry.
What began as a hobby has evolved into a business and I am excited to contribute to the BOC Blog! When I first began thinking about creating ceramic beads, the Beads of Clay group was a godsend. I could not have gotten to where I am today without their help getting me started! I hope to share my knowledge, my art, and share the talents of those who create ceramic beads in all sorts of wearable forms, with you so that you may be inspired too!
Join me every 3rd Sunday right here on the BOC blog as we take a look at ceramic bead artists, using ceramic beads in jewelry making, and much more!
