My name is Mary McClernon and I am mother of 5 great kids (aged 29 to 18) and wife of the most wonderful man in the world. My parents were artists and had 11 children. My claim to fame from this family is my love for children, for making jewelry and creating prayer tools. My interest in natural and quality materials in my work has developed over the past 15 years. I love precious and semi-precious stones, carved beads and sterling silver and bronze metals. Although I do use other metals and less expensive items if they enhance the beauty, comfort or price. I can often be found at Rock Jamborees, antique shops and jewelry supply stores. One of my favorite times of the day is making jewelry with my children. We gab, pray, laugh and create. My husband and I met at a single party for our prayer group. Our first conversation was about guardian angels which began a great adventure of life to the fullest. He is an author of 5 books (more in the works) and we have produced 3 Prayer cd sets (more in the works) which I will be offering to you, through the coop. check out a sample of CDs and books at www.johnmcclernon.com Gifts for special events like birthdays and holidays don’t always coincide with the coops delivery dates, so planning ahead is a great way to have a gift on hand for every occasion. But because that’s not always possible, I hope to offer my products with free shipping.
