Bead Trends Magazine

I just received my complimentary issue of Bead Trend Magazine (thank you Bead Trends!), which features two projects I submitted! It is quite a lovely magazine with some really beautiful projects. I'm pretty sure it's out on the news stands now....

Bead Trends pays their contributors with "product" which is very exciting, because thanks to the Beth Hemmila's of Hint, who has been lovely enough to share her techniques for silver clay on her blog over the last few weeks, I decided to use my Firemountain Gems gift check on some low fire silver art clay! I would have gone with copper or bronze to get my feet wet but they don't have it yet! My head is about to spin off of my shoulders with ideas! Focus girl! FOCUS! Stay tuned for what should be a most interesting experiment!

A happy accident happened over at Lorelei's blog! She is hosting a jewelry round robin and I was accidentally and luckily chosen to participate! Each participant will be blogging about their experience Stay tuned for that as well!

I spotted your pieces immediately in Bead Trends. WOnderful! And I love that you are trying new things with your FMG certificates. I have been saving mine up for a time (just too busy to order) and I plan a massive order soon!
You are one lucky girl to be in the round robin with Lorelei. She is the sweetest and most talented...and you will have a blast. The anticipation of the bracelet exchange was so intense. And seeing the progress on the sites was so cool. I feel as if I have four new and oh so hip friends in the beady world. I will be excitedly following your progress!
Enjoy the day!
