Maryhardingjewelry bead blog is about making ceramic beads and other jewelry components out of clay and sometimes about how to use them in jewelry.
Wow. That is all I can say, Mary! I think that those toggles are awesome. The colors are so saturated and deep. There is a real painterly effect going on here.Bravo!Enjoy the day!Erin
Love the colors!!! Do you use underglazes? I really like the color palettes!
Those are all so beautiful, Mary! I am coveting!
Oh Mary, those toggles are adorable. And I eventually posted about your great gift. I'm so sorry for not coming back to earlier. Ich finde die Sachen, die Du mir geschickt hast, so schön und es ganz toll, dass Dein Mann Deutscher ist und Du auch eine Zeit hier in Deutschland gewohnt hast. Das macht die Sachen noch persönlicher:-) Danke, Danke, Danke!
That clover pendant is a dream! Lover your use of colour!
Gorgeous, Mary. Loving the clover and the new oval shaped toggle. ~Laura (Moags)
Oh Mary! I love your use of color on those toggles!! WOW! Absolutely gorgeous! How bout September for a visit? I'm trying to make up for 7 months of not working and get some new stuff for the Clayton show...sigh...not feeling quite up to snuff either. xoxo Cait
Hi Marsha, Thanks for writing in. The colors--they are Mayco Stroke and Coat under a clear glaze--low fire Cone 06. They are amazing colors I think too. Very versatile and open to mixing, coloring over etc. and esp. good with the stains I use.
Hi Sue, How super that you covet. And what a compliment. Thanks for writing in.
Hi Stephanie,I love the bracelet that you made with your winning beads from my Giveaway. And you used them in a way I have never seen before. How cool.

Hi Moags and Sweet, How cool to hear from you. So glad to get your feedback. I love the clover too. Sometimes you just know something is right. And the oval toggle, I am glad to hear about that--a new shape for me, but seems to be a good one. Thanks for the support.

Hi Cait,Sept sounds good. I wrote also on your blog. I wish you the very best in Clayton. They seem to be on a roll over there. I just taught a class there and Joy was in it. She is very excited about the show too. Would be in it or at least visit but family with grandkids coming that week. Nothing could be better than that. See you soon though.
Those are BREATHTAKING! I just love them. Truly unique.
Sure you can use the pictures - I would be honored, Mary! I wear the bracelet right now and love it even more:-)
That clover piece is a-ma-ZING!I have no idea how you do what you do, Mary, but it is darned exciting!
