April Guest Artist Michelle McCarthy

Our 3D Guest Artist for the month of April is ceramics artist Michelle McCarthy.  Michelle has been following her dream of creating pottery and ceramic beads and pendants for the last 18 years, and is well known for these miniature works of art.  Her beads have been published numerous times in bead magazines and have been on the cover of Stringing Magazine.  She has a successful Etsy shop and exhibits her pottery and ceramic bead jewelry at galleries from St. Petersburg to Key West.  Michelle creates functional and decorative pottery, both on the wheel and with various hand building techniques.  She is drawn to the beauty of nature found in Florida, and often embellishes her artwork with sea creatures and nature elements.
