Some Exciting New Adventures

Well, some pretty exciting "firsts" are happening this year. 

First I found out a while back that one of my jewelry pieces was picked to be in the gallery section of this book.


I just got my copy today.  I sent in picture of 4 different sea glass designs, this is the one they featured in the gallery section.

I also have the privilege of gracing the cover of Bead Design Studio this month.  They do a beautiful job on the magazine with top notch photography.  It is beautiful, and I am honored.
(it is actually my second cover, but the first one I had all to myself)


I wasn't sure when the magazine was coming out, but I got my necklace back early (and its one of my favorites)...I happend to be wearing it as my son and I ran to the store for rolls, and guess what was on the self? I was pretty unhappy to be caught off guard (bad hair day) but had to get the picture since I was actually wearing the necklace!

Finally- I am going to be teaching a class at Bead Fest Philly this year.  

In my class you will learn to make organic polymer focals and beads, learn to paint them with a faux ceramic / aged crackle effect, and then make this finished piece using the beads you made and materials supplied.

You can sign up online here https://www.eiseverywhere.com/ehome/79000.  Just look for the Painted Polymer Fossil Talisman class.  It will be a fun time, and a good chance to learn some new techniques with your fellow artisans.

So that is everything.  I am still catching up from the Bead Show, and post show sale.  Though I hope to be blogging more regularly now.

Also, remember to check out Love my Art Jewelry.  We have a great Boot Camp going on about Asymmetry in your work....tips, encouragement and inspiration!  If I am not blogging here, then I am usually blogging over there!  

Now bring on Spring, and everything will be wonderful !
