I feel as if this week has been nothing but shameless self-promo, but I thought I'd go ahead and share this last little bit for the end of the week (well, sort of - I also hope to have photos from Bead & Button to share over the weekend). I just received word from the publisher today that my pieces are on their way back to me - I have two summery necklaces in this issue. If you go over to the Interweave store, you can actually see a bit of one in the excerpted Table of Contents - it's the piece at the very bottom of the second page toward the center that looks like it's strung with blue cloud-shaped beads. These are, in fact, my very favorite rough cut (but polished on the fronts) Sleeping Beauty turquoise.
It's hard to believe that summer is already here, don't you think? I'm not prepared!
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.
