BOCPAT Clay in Print-- Jewelry Stringing Magazine and MORE

Lovely artisan handmade pendants, charms and beads adorn the pages of the current Jewelry Stringing Magazine.  I am including a run down of all the Beads of Clay Professional Artist Team members I found published in this issue.  Photos of their work are examples of their work but not necessarily the ones published.  Each artist photo has a link below it  to the shop or website where they can be seen in more detail and possibly purchased..  I hope you will give them a visit.

Slate Studio Supply, Sarah Kandell Gritzmaker,  designed a beautiful necklace she titled Through The Woods which includes her handmade ceramic fern pendant.   She also designed a bracelet and 2 pairs of earrings.

Sherri Mallery,. the owner and artist of Slingin Mud, designed a bracelet with some of her own ceramic beads  .  They can be  found in the Bracelet Gallery of the Winter edition of Jewelry Stringing.  Sherri tells me that this is the first time she has been published and she is so excited about it. You can see the bracelet she made in this banner above.  It is the blue bracelet on your left.

Mary Harding designed two pairs of earrings with one pair featuring her ceramic flower charms and the other pair featuring a large mica disk from Daniel Essig on Etsy.
