Glass Metal Clay reaches out to beaded jewelry designers. We promote our artists in print magazines with a strong subscriber base, and online, at the sources beaders turn to for supplies. Our website helps to both direct visitors to the websites of the artists featured in our ads and to create desire for handmade beads and findings.

The website

Our Market enjoys creating handmade jewelry, both for personal enjoyment and for resale. Our passionate beaders are looking for that special bead which will take their work and their sales to the next level. Our market wants to stand out with one of a kind handmade jewelry, and our beads help these designers create.

Our advertisers are talented creators. They skillfully work with glass, polymer clay, ceramic, precious metal clay, silver, gold and even silk to present the best handmade components for jewelry design. Their high quality photos show off their work, which is sold through their website or online shop.
