I’m beyond honored and thrilled to share with you that I was published in Jewelry Affaire Magazine, Winter 2016 from Stampington & Company! I’ve been meaning to post about this but my day job really keeps me hopping.  This magazine is full of stunning photographs of gorgeous and inspired jewelry designs that range from fabulous fun to simply elegant. This particular issue is filled with over 120 effortless ideas including “designing with hand-painted canvas” and “8 Ways to Try the Tassel Trend” and “A Collection of Delicate Vintage Treasures”. (You had me at vintage!!!)   If you haven’t checked out this publication yet, and you enjoy making jewelry, you’ll want to see it for yourself. Stay tuned for a chance to win a copy of your own!

I’m happy to tell you that not only was my jewelry set published, but it’s also one of the sneak peek photo layouts on the Stampington website! I’m over the moon excited!

The color palette inspiration for this necklace came from the gorgeous aqua African Trade Beads. They remind me of beautiful sea glass. The focal piece was created from a Relics & Artifacts resin craft blank from Sandra Evertson from her “Intaglios” collection. You can read all about the easy techniques I used to paint the focal, create the beaded necklace, along with easy instructions on creating the bracelets, in the accompanying article, “Poseidon’s Gift”.

I’m so thankful to editor Natalie Way and the team at Stampington and Company and feel so blessed to be included in such a stellar publication!

And, I’m in talented company!  My friend, Carol Lucero, was also a featured artist in this issue. I don’t feel worthy to have my jewelry in the same publication as Carol and the other featured artists but I’m hopeful that this is a sign that I’m on the right creative track.
