After two full weeks devoted to Steam Week, which was some pretty serious research and intensive blogging, I am pretty blogged out. I am buried in work, still haven't touched my paperwork for expenses for income tax, and have slacked on sharing all the press and news I have going on right now. So all this week, I am calling it in a little bit (ring ring), with simpler posts and shameless self promotion and horn tooting (toot toot), to catch you up with what's going on around here.
First up, the Joy of Drama bracelet, in the new Spring issue of Stringing Magazine. I submitted 4 bracelets to this issue and 3 were accepted. Usually, all of the bracelets in the issue are shown in a group over a few pages, but they asked for a full page of instructions for this entry, which was an exciting deviation. It's an earthy, chunky charm bracelet made with beautiful hand dyed silk, a couple of my porcelain beads (a leaf and a linky thing), and charms by Green Girl, Lily Studios, and Vintage Faerie...some of my very favorite things! The Green Girl fairy coin charm says Joy on the back and the Vintage Faerie says Drama, thus the inspiration for the title of the bracelet!
I will show you the other pieces from this issue in the next couple of days. It is supposed to reach the bookstores tomorrow, so go look for it, it is another beautiful issue!
