Mary Harding Jewelry

Mary Harding is one of the editors here at Art Bead Scene. Mary creates wonderful pieces of nature from clay in her Canton, New York studio. Her clay components can be seen in many pieces of jewelry made by her and many other jewelry makers.
Mary's recent work involves gathering the timeless and enduring plants of the pastures of Northern New York and channeling them to create ceramic pendants, beads, buttons and toggle clasps, marks a fresh and imaginatively interpreted fusion of styles and material embodied in her colorful renderings of these resilient beauties. This direction has made it possible for her work to be included in the Folk Gallery of the Traditional Arts in Upstate New York museum in Canton, New York.

Mary is donating the a $50 gift certificate for the Monthly Recap winner.
