Even more shameless promo from me - I have a cheerful necklace entitled "Heart to Heart" incorporating some of Michele Goldstein's wonderful beads (along with one of my graphic heart pendants) and a turquoise bracelet project in the Spring 2009 issue of Stringing. My heart charms and pendants are also part of the heart bead profile. Check out Lorelei Eurto's and Heather Power's great pieces on the cover, among others. (It took me a couple days to realize this, but my piece is actually on the cover, too - it's just that you can only see the clasp - big beaded, sterling silver toggle ring smack in between Heather's and Lorelei's necklaces - and the strands of button pearls. Oh, well!)
I was going to show off that new pendant today (really - no, really), but the Short One took a shorter nap than usual, and I didn't have time to photograph it. Will do my best to try again tomorrow...
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.
