I can't believe that January is almost half over! Where does the time go? I have to say, that I had a great start to the New Year! On Jan 1st I heard that 4 of my jewelry designs were accepted for publication in the new bead magazine, Bead Trends! It's a beautiful little magazine that looks like a book and I'm proud to have my work featured in it. Also, I entered a blog contest with the brass jewelry finding company, Vintaj, and won one of their necklace kits! Not a bad start to the year! lol! I really like the Vintaj company and have started to order some of their brass findings to go with my beads. They are lovely and have such a rich patina which I adore! I also just entered another of their design contests for which I created a dragonfly necklace using large quartz crystals and a few of my favorite pieces from their collection. I call it "Winter Flight" and it's # 17 on the blog page. While this necklace does not feature any of my beads, it was still incredibly fun to make! The contest voting runs only for one week so if you want to check it out, you can visit their blog here www.vintaj.com/wpblog (or click the title of this blog for a direct link to their site) and vote for your favorite design!
I have also been working on new beads and will be posting them over the next few days! Stay tuned!!
