Optimist Published in Belle Armoire Magazine

 

I think my Chicken and Egg pendant was destined for greatness.  I named her Optimist after all.  She was a few years in the making as I described in an earlier post.  She'll always be one of my favorite pendants of all time.

Belle Armoire Magazine did it again and created a lovely page for my pendant.  Isn't she adorable?!

Fun Guy gets me Published!

 

I have the editor of Belle Armoire Jewelry and my husband to thank for the honor this time.

The editor contacted me and asked that I submit some of my jewelry for publication.  I didn't feel I had time to figure out what to submit so asked her to tell me which pieces caught her eye.  This one was one of them.

What Came First? Chicken or the Egg?

 

In this case the chicken!  As a lifelong creator and learner I've taken quite a few workshops in my life.  I like to experiment and try new things.  The older I get the more time I have to do so and the greater benefit to my brain and art I think.  Years ago I took a class on electroforming and promptly came home and took some small plastic chickens and gave them a coating of copper.  Then they found themselves in a jar since I had no idea what I was going to do with them, but they made me smile every time they caught my eye.

I've been published in Belle Armoire Jewelry!

The next best thing to having a client fall in love with one of my pieces is to be published!

The current issue (Summer 2018) of Belle Armoire Jewelry features one of my statement necklaces and the coordinating lampwork earrings.  The editor contacted me earlier this year and asked for a few of my pieces for consideration.  This set was selected to have a feature so that means I got paid, too!

In just a little over a week I'll be re-opening my jewelry studio for another season of creative playing.  I know I'm ready, because I've been collecting new stones that are inspiring me.
