Jana Margeson is the owner and founder of Black Cat Beads, a handmade jewelry company that specializes in polymer clay beads. The brand’s aesthetic is fun, vibrant and colorful, and because each piece is designed and made entirely by hand, you can be sure that your jewelry is truly unique.
Black Cat Beads features polymer clay beads decorated with swirling patterns of bright color, including neon pink, purple and yellow. These eye-catching beads dangle from otherwise simple, understated silver hooks or strands, creating a stylish dichotomy that allows the beads to shine. This type of chainmaille jewelry is made from Black Cat Beads’ own Argentium sterling silver findings, and when she isn’t featuring her signature polymer beads, she often accents her jewelry with Swarovski crystals or other fine gemstones. Look for this Galena, Ohio-based jewelry designer at the next Sugarloaf Craft Festival.
