belle armoire jewelry fall '08 issue

Feeling a slight hair on the side of the living now, I was most happy to receive my artist's advance copy of the Fall '08 issue of Belle Armoire Jewelry yesterday. As usual, lovely things in there and much to peruse.

The fuschia/pink/purple/yellow bracelet featured on the index page is one of three that the magazine published in the new issue. The title of my article is "A Tribute to Art," and shows these three bracelets with charms and mokume gane beads I created, the colors and composition a tribute to three of my favorite artists- Frida Kahlo, Henri Matisse, and Richard Diebenkorn.

This photo is my own of the one piece since I am not up to photo shopping the magazine cover and index. I hope everyone who is interested in compelling jewelry techniques and design will pick up their copy, out in bookstores September 1.

Congrats on the magazine article! Glad you're a "hair" better.

CONGRATULATIONS! That is wonderful news. I will be on the lookout for a copy. Maybe you can also post a reminder when it's out. The bead bracelets are gorgeous. Did they interview you, as well? I am so happy for you.

Have you ever thought of submitting your rosaries for display and sale in a large cathedral community or Christian bookstore? I would think that they would go like wildfire, especially at a conference. I am hoping to attend a conference at a large Episcopal Cathedral next month, and that's why I thought of it.
I hope you continue to recover from the fall. God bless you.
