On the newstands!

The June issue of Bead Trends is on the stands, and chocked full of spectacular pictures, great artwork, splendid instructions, and tons of inspiration!

Junes issue has three of my pieces, and each month through November will have at least one of my pieces represented! In case you can't get out to get a copy, I'll share mine with you here!

The Cover

Scatter Wishes - Rose quartz, faceted citrine, Czech and swarovski crystals

Strolling thru the Infiorata - Murano glass pendant, random gemstone, lampwork, glass and seed beads. My dad sent me this Murano glass pendant for Christmast, and told me to do something grand with it :)

Jo's Jewelry - Bronzite, porcelain, dyed howlite, 'raspberry quartz' glass. My daughter has a way of downplaying her clothes and wearing jewelry as the fashion statement. Her clothes are more or less the catalyst for her jewelry, purses, and scarves. I made this in a screaming, bold tribute to her.

That is my 15 minutes of fame in June!!! Till tomorrow kids!
