January Monthly Challenge Prizes

Our wonderful sponsors for the January Monthly Challenge
Marsha Neal Studio

Marsha's prize donation is shown above, "Seashore Silk Bundle Knot" which consists of ten 2mm hand painted silk strands, plus 3 Porcelain pendants.
My fellow Beads-of-Clay member Marsha Neal Minutella makes her beautiful pendants from porcelain clay with decals and wonderful glazes. Her inspirations come from nature and her Entomology degree. Many of Marsha's design look cellular as you would see under a microscope.
