Las Vegas Glass and Bead Show 2016 Metal Clay Today Fall 2015Now Available to Premier Subscribers - the Winter 2015-2016 Edition of Metal Clay Today is ready for your reading enjoyment!

The Winter 2015 Edition of Metal Clay Today is online and ready for you to enjoy. We're pleased to give you a winter wonderland of artistic inspiration and tips in this issue. In Teresa Mahler's profile of our featured artist, Marie Gniazdowski, you'll not only meet this very talented and experienced jeweler, you'll learn a couple of her best tips for working with metal clay. We also have four wonderful step-by-step projects from incredible artists. Kim Morris shows you how to combine four different colors of clay in one piece with her lovely Hummingbird Pendant tutorial. Amanda Aldridge will wow you with her garden-inspired Shadowbox Pendant that incorporates both motion and sound. Carrie Story is back with a Bronze Syringe Tree Pendant that includes tips for using a clever new tool, the Syringe Pen. And Colleen White wraps up her series of ring tutorials with a stunning Opal, Ruby and Pearl Ring that you'll want to make in time for that special holiday party.

But that's just part of what we have in store for you. You'll also learn tips for using a dial controlled kiln from Pam East. She'll walk you through using these manually controlled (less expensive) kilns. In typical Pam style, she takes the fear factor away. In other tips, Ed and Martha Biggar tell all about testing for sintering. I learned some tricks that were new to me, like a no-bend way to test for sintering. (And you'll learn about a cool tool that Martha uses in her tests, too!) Speaking of tools, Jennifer Gastelum reviews the Jewelyn Bracelet Molds and gives tips for using them. Bracelet Molds aren't just for bracelets!

In the second installment of her column, Innovators in Business, Meghan Gage introduces you to Nicola Beer, an up and coming new artist from Great Britain. (Meghan is looking for other artists with interesting businesses to profile in future issues. Drop us a line at if you'd like her to consider you.)  Our favorite photographer, Steve Rossman shares a quick and easy way to resize a whole batch of photos at once—a real timesaver!! In our Gallery, you'll get some great eye-candy to get your inspiration flowing. And in Creative Inspirations, I'll tell you how cleaning up can lead to new ideas. You won't want to miss this issue! Fix yourself a cup of cocoa, set aside the holiday bustle for a little while, and give yourself the gift of some time reading.

From all of us at Metal Clay Today to all of you, may your holidays be peaceful and happy and full of creativity.
