"Silver Caps" Project Published

Issue 14 of "Bead" was published today, and it contains my very first published project!

The lead time for getting items published is enormous, and I prepared it months ago, so it was as if I was seeing it for the first time. The project photos are a bit dodgy, having been taken on my old camera, but the magazine photographer has taken some lovely photos of the necklace itself. It even made the front cover. That means that with the beads that Lynn used in her project being on the front cover of the current issue of "Beads & Beyond", and this necklace being on the front cover of "Bead", you can't fail to miss me when you walk into WH Smiths this month!

The "elephant auctions" are going incredibly well again. At the moment bids amount to just over £1200, which is just brilliant! A massive thank you to everyone who has placed a bid.


The DSWT sent an email out to all supporters today, with links to the auctions. The combined effect of that email, with the coverage I have in "Bead" and "Beads & Beyond" has resulted in a staggering number of hits on my website. While I have a few pieces of jewellery for sale on my website, on Etsy, Folksy and my new ArtForm studio, I have absolutely no beads for sale at the moment!

Please please keep my website bookmarked because there will be new beads and pieces of jewellery added in due course.

Well, that's it for now. I'm off to check how the auctions are going!

You are on a roll girl!!!! Wow it is such a high isnt it! Very very well done to you and I havent seen the mag yet as I usually get it saved at the newsagents but I am sure it will be fantastic. And what you are doing for the elephants is so fabulous, you are inspiring. :))
