So a few weeks ago I wrote a ‘pity post’ about how some jewelry pieces
that had been accepted for publication were returned
because the magazine, Bead Trends, had folded up shop.
Well, here’s the silver lining story…
two pair of earrings were published in the current issue of Jewelry Stringing !
If you just got your copy in the mail or digitally, check out Pages 62 and 63.
Mine are #1 and #26.
Not one of the bigger project pages, but I am very pleased just the same.
The publisher recently returned the two pair of earrings,
a copy of the pages, the magazine, and a bracelet that had made the first cut
for an article called Raw Beauty, but not the final cut.
It started as a length of 1/4 inch copper tubing, put through the rolling mill numerous times.
Annealed and hit with a torch to create an iridescent patina.
Wire wrapped with three small chunks of raw amethyst.
