In July, Naomi Fujimoto, Senior Editor at BeadStyle Magazine, asked me if I would send her my Secret Garden earrings to be featured in the Earring Gallery in the November issue of the magazine. Of course I said yes, and promptly shipped them off to her, then waited very impatiently until I received my advance copy this morning to see if there really were in it. They are! Woo Hoo! I am beyond excited.
Thanks again, Naomi. You were so great to work with, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I will probably be hounding you about other submissions now, because you made it was so easy the first time! You are the best.
Naomi also has a stunning necklace included in the issue, so I hope you will check it out.
I have one more pair of earrings from this same color batch, too, which are also listed in the shop.
Okay, now to bring my head out of the clouds long enough to get back in the studio today.
I got a wild hair yesterday and started working on some faux mercury glass beads, the result of reading Amy Hanna's book, Rejuvenated Jewels. I love the book, but it features one of a kind, vintage components I am not likely to find anywhere in the boonies of the South Carolina lowcountry, so I have to resort (again!) to trying to recreate the look on my own. Thank goodness polymer clay is so versatile! More on those later.
