The Winter 2016 issue of Belle Armoire Jewelry is one of the best ones yet.
I never fail to find inspiration in each issue.
This one is just as inspiring.
I want to share some of my favorites from this issue.
This wire piece from Angela Gruenke speaks volumes to me.
The pieces from Carol Dekle-Foss are inspiring.
This is a technique on my to do list for sure.
Cat Kerr is talented and versatile.
She is constantly creating and sharing beautiful new techniques and pieces.
These bangles are something I want to try...
I love the organic look of this necklace from Elizabeth Hodges.
It really draws me in and makes me want to touch this piece...
And these earrings from Andrea Chebeleu?
Gorgeous and inspiring!
And then there are some color drenched pieces that inspire me to break out of my neutrals mode.
These pieces from Cherie FitzSimons-Orr are riveting and bright.
I love them!
Also full of color and possibilities are these pieces from Carol Ognibene Kornievsky.
I adore how they incorporate bright doodles...
Melinda Barnett is featured in this issue as well.
Her wrapped links are always so beautiful.
Melinda incorporates polymer clay in such an inspiring way in these pieces.
And then there are these wine cork necklaces.
When I read there were going to be wine cork necklaces in this issue, I never pictured anything as fantastic as these creations from Jamie Larson.
These pieces leave me speechless...
I am especially proud of this issue of Belle Armoire Jewelry as it features a few of my pieces as well.
Every time I see my pieces in a magazine, I am transported back to when it was made or I photographed it.
The pieces in the Love Nests article were created this summer.
In the article, I walk you through how to make your own clay stamps.
I made the nest stamp used for these pieces.
The three eggs are symbolic for my family.
The Forest Floor collection is one of my favorites I have made to date.
I love the twisted wire and silk incorporated with all the primitive polymer clay pieces.
The article shares how to do several finishes on the clay pieces as well as how to achieve the very distinct look of the metal shotgun shells and rhinestones.
The faux bone look for Sculpey clay is one of my favorites to produce and then create with.
Back in the gallery are a necklace and bracelet created with silicone molds I made with lavender from my garden this summer.
I love how Stampington and Company photographed these pieces.
