Here's another great issue of Stringing. I've been blowing magazine submission deadlines left and right this past year, but I did manage to squeak in under the wire for this issue with a nice necklace design using my lunar phases pendant - which I was lucky enough to have the editors accept. Thank you, Stringing! It looks beautiful, as usual.
I think the issue must be on the newsstands by now, because I had an inquiry today about the lunar pendant. I haven't been very good about stocking the shop lately, but I do expect to have lunar pendants and sea and shore box pendants (from my Step by Step Beads project for this month) available in the next week or so. Actually, I am anticipating making changes to the shop and the way I offer pendants/beads. More on this later in the month.
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.
