As Seen In Stringing Fall 2012 Issue

I have known for some time that I had three pieces accepted for publication in the Fall issue of Stringing Magazine.  While I have shared that thrilling news with very few people, it is now time for a full reveal.  I received my copy so I assume that it is available on news stands now also.

Be sure to pick up a copy.

Now, for my pieces.

The focal clasp is by Ingrid Mueller of Potterygirl1.  She and I are both very excited that it was accepted.  I used some picasso pink seed beads, Czech faceted glass tubes and fire polished beads, button beads, Vintaj leaf charms and hand made brass chain.

My bracelet is the one on the bottom.  The "Dream" focal is by Karen Totten of Starry Road Studio and I cut the leather straps.  We are working on putting together a tutorial and kits so look for those to be announced soon.

And, my personal favorite.  Natalie Pappas of NKPBeads made the elephant bead.  Don't worry, she has made several and has them available in her shop.

I have also received word that Stringing is publishing two of my pieces in the Winter 2012 issue as well, but more on that when the magazine comes out.

And, Ingrid, Karen and Natalie -- feel free to share this wonderful news on your blogs if you would like.  You all three share with me in this party because without you guys these pieces would never have been made.  Thank you all.

Last week I received my copy of stringing magazine. As always I did a quick one through to see what caught my eye as unique. I stopped at the gorgeous Dream bracelet. So I flipped to the back to see which wonderfully talented designer created it. You always create such a vast variety of pieces, each one special and fresh. Congratulations of your publications!
