Exciting news!

I just found out that one of my pendants has been used in a project featured in the current issue of Stringing Magazine (Spring 2008 issue). A big thanks to Melanie of Earthenwood Studio for giving me the heads up. You'll see one of my bright aqua leafy pendants incorporated into a necklace by Michelle Mach along with Melanie's adorable sea bird and nest charms.

I will have a limited number of Melanie's charms on hand and she will have some of my pendants for anyone who might like to have one stop ceramic shopping to make the project! This pendant style is $10 and available in several patterns and glazes made to order. I'll update with links to items that are made and in stock once I can get a kiln load finished!

This is the first time that I'm aware of one of my pendants making it into print so I'm quite celebratory! I think that I'll have to come up with some type of incentive for all you jewelry designers to get your pieces using any of my ceramic beads/pendants featured in beading magazines. Hmmmm...maybe some reward pendants of your choosing for each project pictured in a magazine that credits Chinook Jewelry as a materials source? I think that would work nicely!

Now I'm off to make a big load of pendants and re-stock my supply of the cut-out window design...

  1. I also used two of your tiny square ceramic pendants (same color) for earrings. I submitted those for the summer issue of Stringing. I don't know if they've been accepted or not--cross your fingers!
