If you are interested in being a future AJE contributor or don't want to commit but would like the additional web presence, I highly encourage you to contact me (Jen) at jennifer.glassaddictions(at)gmail.com about guest blogging opportunities.
In the meantime, I would like to introduce you to the new AJE contributors as you will start seeing them post this coming week. Please browse their blogs, get acquainted with them (if you aren't already). I am super excited to have a fresh infusion of insight and creativity that these lovely ladies will provide all of us.
AJE is going international with team member Lesley Watt. Lesley is also known as The Gossiping Goddess, and she creates gorgeous bronze components. I was super lucky paired with Lesley for the last bead soup blog party. She also designs jewelry using components in addition to other art beads.

Next up is mixed media artist and jewelry designer extraordinaire Jenny Davies-Reazor. Jenny creates these wonderful ceramic pendants with the majority of her inspiration comes from nature and mythology.

Francesca Watson has taken to banging the heck out of metal and the results are nothing short of amazing in her jewelry designs. You will love her writing style and her photos.

Melissa Meman enamels beads and does a lot of wire and metal work in her jewelry designs. I love that she calls her line of enameled components "melismatic morsels"

Susan Kennedy is a fellow lampwork artist. I am in awe of her ability to get several beads of the same exact size and shape, which is definitely not in my skill set.

Last but not least is Linda Landig. Linda designs jewelry using a big dose of handmade components and I think you will adore her as much as we all do. She has several online shops, but I found these darling earrings in her etsy shop.

Have a great weekend and see you back here tomorrow for the September component of the month reveal.
