Shameless You-Know-What: Bead Trends


I just received the November 2009 issue of Bead Trends. I have a necklace in here using my tree pendant, some really stunning rough citrine chunks I found at Enbeadia and beautiful faceted lemon quartz from Ayla's Originals (one of my local go-to places for nice stone). The photography in this issue is, as usual, wonderful. I was afraid it would be difficult to capture the incandescent quality of the stone, due to its paleness, but the photographer did an excellent job, with nice close-ups of the stone and clasp. Thank you, Bead Trends!

Congrats! I have a necklace in the issue, too, but haven't seen it yet. I'll be looking for yours, too, now!

Congrats on being in Bead Trends! The photography is excellent and one of the main reasons I subscribed. Can't wait until I get my issue so I can see your work!

Fab! It must be so wonderful to see your work in print. My beads have had a couple of little mentions in UK magazines and it always cheers me up so goodness knows how good seeing all your beautiful work in print makes you feel!

Well done you. :o)

"Lost Treasure" looks beautiful! The staging is quite nice, too, against a piece of ceramic - really makes the piece pop.

Hi Suzann,

I agree - and thanks! I have to admit, I always enjoy just sitting down and reading the mag cover to cover when I get my copy...

Thanks, Laura! I know - you never quite lost that thrill of seeing your work published, right? Now I just have to come up with new designs to submit for the next round...

Yippee! That means that a certain little white box will be waiting for me this week! Can't wait to see it... and to see what I have in there (I fear that I forgot what it was...think it was earrings!)
Enjoy the day!
