New Beads and Beyond

The new issue of Beads and Beyond is out to subscribers and almost out to the shops (tomorrow I think) and I'm so excited to tell you about my design in this month's issue! I don't have a photo just now but I promise I will put one on here shortly. I really found a lot of inspiration from right here, our diverse beading and jewellery making internet community which is one of my favourite things about this glorified hobby of mine. Two of the main sources came through my friend Eve - lamp work beads from Clare Scott and hand dyed silk ribbon from Sowzere - and I got the idea of how to actually connect up the ribbon into a design from Lorelei. Three of those blogs are down on my blog list on the right hand side of this post and I love to drop in and see what folks are writing about. Isn't the Internet just the best source of inspiration? I love how it connects us all as individuals.

Wow, this is really cool - congratulations, mam. I have tried for some time to get something published but most of the time, I never even hear back from the publishers. I love the blogs - they are kind of addictive. And for sure you are welcome over here any time, but I do not think that I can really show you how to do some of that metal stuff. It is more trial and error right now.... Would love to meet with you one day, here or in the UK.
