This year's issue of "Creative Jewelry" has officially hit the newstands and I am published in it!
These are my "Jumping Through Hoops" earrings - featuring beautiful patinated copper dolphin charms and rings from Patricia Healey (sorry, no link - she doesn't sell on-line although I think Artbeads.com sometimes carries some of her stuff). Dangles are Caribbean blue opal Swarovski crystals and amethyst Czech glass beads.
They also published my personal favorite design of all the things I created last year. That gorgeous ceramic focal is from The Classic Bead.
A lot of other great artists (y'know, besides me LOL) are featured in this magazine so be sure to check it out if you get a chance. Last year's issue was by far my favorite magazine of the entire year and I was strongly influenced by a lot of the designs and vendors!
And if all the self-promo'ing is boring the snot out of you, don't worry. I'm sure that I will have to go back to the GS or that Ryan will destroy something else sometime in the near future and things will get back to normal around here ;-)
In the meantime, thanks for sharing in my triumphs!
