Well, since I have been away from the home studio so much this summer, I missed telling you about an important piece of press I had recently. The picture above is from a product review in the Bead Soup section of the August issue of Bead & Button Magazine. I was really surprised and excited to get the advanced copy of this, because it was very unexpected! I don't get a lot of coverage in Bead & Button, and it is a major publication, so I was very pleased with it. Thank you to Bead & Button Magazine!
It was also the first appearance of the Steam Stone line in print, other than my advertisements. I can't tell you how interesting it is to experience this process...from the conception of an idea to the creation and production, to the marketing, to seeing it take off in print and with customers, where it starts to spread. This is just the beginning of the press that is coming out about the Steam Stones, and I will be talking about the other exciting things that are starting to trickle out, press wise, this week. It is a very exciting time here for me in the studio.
