Published - Three Times This Month!

I don't know what it is, but I really am starting to think March is a lucky month for me.  I'm not kidding - all kinds of cool things always seem to happen to me in the month of March.  This month is no exception.

Today, on my lunch hour, I wandered into the local Hancock Fabric store in my area, and browsed through Belle Armoire Jewelry magazine while I was there.  And - what do you know -  one of my wire and glass necklaces is featured in the Boutique section.  I really had no idea this was going to be published, as Stampington hasn't contacted me yet.  But in any case, this was a really nice surprise today.

A few days ago, I found that my article in Polymer Cafe magazine is now on the newsstands.  They ended up publishing an alternate project I sent them (for the "how to" step-by-step details) instead of the original Victorian necklace and earrings design I submitted.  But that's alright - I love both necklace designs and I'm thrilled that they chose to publish one of them.

Last, I also just received information from Heather Skowood, author of Jewelry From Found Objects, that the book will be released by the publisher on March 11, 2011 (which is this Friday). is currently taking pre-orders on this book; it features one of my repurposed statement necklaces made from vintage enamel brooches and earrings.  My complimentary copy of the book is on it's way to me.  I'm really looking forward to seeing all of the repurposed items being featured.  I love that sort of thing. :) 

Wow - what a whirlwind of a month it's proven to be - and we're only into the first week of the month.    Believe me - I can definitely handle the excitement.  :)

Publishing News! PolymerCAFE Magazine and Cloth, Paper, Scissors

I'm thrilled to tell you that PolymerCAFE magazine will be featuring my "Victorian Elegance" necklace and earrings set in the near future.  This set features vintage filigree stampings embellished by clay roses, crystals and glass beads.  I'm in the process of writing the article and taking the "how to" photographs at this time. The actual issue where it will be featured will be decided by the magazine after they receive my completed article.  Being an avid polymer-clay artist for over 15 years, I have been a reader of this terrific publication for a long, long time, so I've got to tell you, this is WAY cool.  As soon as I have more information about which issue will feature this project, I'll let you know.  Please stay tuned... 

Also, if you get a chance to check out the latest edition of Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine (the November-December 2010 issue) be sure to check out a little blurb about my "Winter Frost" assemblage necklace.  It's a repurposed necklace I made from vintage enamel brooches and earrings.  Cloth, Paper, Scissors normally does not feature jewelry-related items, so I was pretty psyched when they asked if they could include it in their "Muse Flash" section of the magazine.  How COOL is that?!
