Australian Beading Magazine - Even More Shameless Self-Promotion
Yep, two straight days of shameless self-promotion. I hope you will excuse the excess on my part. This one is special to me, as it's my first appearance in a non-U.S.-based magazine. The lovely Jean Yates writes a column for Australian Beading Magazine (I was not able to find a website for the magazine - does anyone know if there is one?), and she asked me if I would be willing to be featured one month. Being of (mostly) sound mind, I said "YES!" The article is out this month, and it is lovely. Jean is such a wonderful writer, and she makes anyone about whom she writes look so, so good. Thank you so much, Jean - I feel like a rock star!
Jean also wrote a wonderful review of Jennifer Heynen's new book Ceramic Bead Jewelry: 30 Fired & Inspired Projects, and I just found out that my friend Mary Harding is also profiled in the issue! Australian Beading Magazine is unfortunately not yet available in the United States (although I believe that will change shortly). For any readers who live in a country where it is available, please do check out the issue. I would love to hear what you think.
I am an intellectual property lawyer by training and have a background in English Renaissance literature. I love science fiction. I primarily watch Sesame Street these days and find myself humming "Pop Goes the Weasel" at odd moments (guess why). I can happily eat ice cream in the middle of winter when the wind chill is 20 below 0. I have been making beads and designing jewelry since 2007.
