We are very lucky to have talented artists gracing the pages of our 2014 Jewelry Supplies Catalog, including author and instructor Melissa Cable. She is the author of three books: Spotlight on Wire, Metal Jewelry in Bloom and her latest release Beautiful Leather Jewelry. With ten years in the business, Melissa’ has hands-on understanding of various jewelry techniques that stretch beyond the “normal”. Her designs include wood, clay, concrete, paint, leather, plastic and many more.
Melissa has been featured in notable publications such as Art Jewelry, BeadStyle and Wirework Magazine and has taught various jewelry classes around the world. If you are interested in taking a class, she will be teaching at the Bead & Button Show in Milwaukee, WI or you can view her upcoming teaching engagements here.
I suggest signing up for her inspiratonal blog: Create Recklessly which is full of design ideas, how-to’s, recipes and more.
