Gwen Fisher's bead work was printed on the poster advertising the October 2010, semi annual meeting of the Mathematical Association of America, Southern California/Nevada Section.  The beaded bead is explained in her newly released Ionic Polyhedra pattern, and the bracelet is from her Night Sky pattern from 2008.

Marianne "Mak" Kasparian of MAKUstudio Raku Jewelry is honored and very excited to announce that one of her raku pendants has been selected to be published in Lark Books' 500 Raku book set to come out next spring.
