Published! Meeee!!

Two of my bracelets are in the February edition of Bead Trends!  I rushed off to get the digital edition and just LOVE how they photographed my bracelets! 

The bracelet below was created with magatama beads (available in my Czech glass collections on Etsy), etched cream lampwork by Rob Johnson, lampwork by Lisa Falzone, peanut seed beads, TierraCast copper beadcaps and clasp and the focal is a polymer clay bead made by me. 

The bracelet below was my entry for the Art Bead Scene challenge last year. Everything except the green Ghanan trade beads and the toho seed was handmade by me. I love forging metal and etching is another favourite of mine, although something I haven't done for a long time. 


  1. Well done you - absolutely fabulous and I can just imagine your joy at being published. I'll have to investigate this magazine - I hadn't come across it.

  2. Congratulations!! Those are both really super pieces but I'm smitten with the second one. It's so bright!
