Still more new artists at The Gift Shop

We are not finished meeting the artists who have joined The Gift Shop from our successful 2016 Christmas Market.
Today let's look at the works of Julie Matuzak, Jan Filarski, and Carol Johnson.

Julie Matuzak (MAT) works in clay. Her patterns and techniques are very interesting.
Here are two examples of her clay work:

Jan Filarski (FIL) is a well-known artist, now she has joined The Gift Shop. Jan has brought us necklaces and pins made using tiny canvasses. Every one is a piece of wearable art. Here are two each of her colorful necklaces and pins:

Carol Johnson (JOHN) is also a jewelry artist. She uses gemstones, crystals, and wire wrap to create her pieces. Shown are several of her organic, very pretty pieces:

(Remember, the letters in parentheses after each artist's name show their code. When you see that code on work in The Gift Shop, you will know who created it.)
