I'm in the process of writing up projects for Creative Jewelry, so I've been thinking a bit about the projects I wrote for the 2009 issue of the magazine (which I believe is still on newsstands). This piece is called "Framed Heart", and it did appear in last year's issue. This was my submission's photo for the piece, if you're interested. I really love the clean, geometric cut of the turquoise and built the project around that bead.
Thanks for all of your good wishes. I did finish my project by the skin of my teeth - and I'm still in the process of trying to catch up on sleep! I've had a tremendous response to the giveaway so far - keep those entries coming! Remember, you have until this Thursday to enter (scroll down to the last link on this page to go to the appropriate post). (Oh, and Zazu Ta, I checked with Artbeads.com - they do not ship to India at this time. Sorry!)
In the meantime, here are your bead and jewelry links for the week:

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.
