Harvest Time

Sometimes when you are toiling away making jewelry for the magazines, it's a little like planting seeds. You know it will be months before you see the fruit of your labor and your work in print.

Today was harvest day my friends! Bead Trends sent my advanced copy for their October issue. I'm the featured designer and have 12 pages and 11 projects! They did such a beautiful job of the photography, I just keep looking at over and over again. What a joy.

I'm happy to say that I incorporated beads from some of my favorite beadmakers and will highlight them in a future blog post. I just had to share, I'm too excited tonight!

Above is my Harvest bead, one of the many in the magazine.
