The Spring 2016 issue of Jewelry Affaire is now on news stands.
It is a really great issue.
And it is extremely special to me.
Did you notice why?
Yup, that is my name on the cover.
How can that be....?
The featured artist.
A once-in-a-lifetime moment.
And you better believe I am savoring it...
I bet you can guess my favorite jewelry medium.
If you said polymer clay, you are right...
This is special for the obvious reasons, but this issue means so much to me for more reasons...
I think all artists know little pieces of ourselves and our stories are woven into the pieces we make.
This collection has a lot of my story woven in because of the things in my life that were happening while I created it.
When I asked my daughter if there was anything from this collection that she would like to have, she said the multi-strand bracelets...
She has great taste...
What can I say?
She must get it from her Dad...
One of the reasons I so love this issue is because my daughter also has 2 of her pieces in it as well.
Maybe she has just a little of me in there too....
And to top it off, my dear friend Melinda Barnett has her beautiful work featured on the cover!!!
Of course this issue is filled with over 120 beautiful pieces to inspire you.
One of my very favorites is this amazing bracelet from Peggy Sowers Heckman.
How gorgeous is that?
I am thrilled to give an issue of this magazine away.
