I submitted another one of my necklaces from my 'Paris' Line to Bead Trends and they accepted it!  
 will be featured in the May 2013 issue. 

 I'm not allowed to show you the design until after it comes out in print, but I will post it as soon as I can.  

In the meantime, 
here are a few of my favorites from the line.
There are still many more in the works and these are available for purchase in my etsy shop.

My next submission 
to Bead Trends was in the May 2012 issue. 

This one is called 'Charms Belle' which is means beautiful charms in French.

Strands of January

Words cannot explain the excitement I felt when I received an email from Bead Trends magazine saying that they wanted to use my necklace in their January 2012 issue.  The challenge was to design a piece which reflected the colors of winter and was called 'Winter blues color challenge.'  The piece that I designed was an 8 strand necklace using Blue Lace Agate, Amethyst, Moonstone, Pearls in Champagne, Blue Green, Peach Pink and Blue Freshwater Pearls, several different chains and a Moonstone pendant.  I decided to have a contest to name the piece and decided on 'Strands of January' which a friend of mine, Gieselle Stone, thought of.  She received some white coin pearl earrings for coming up with the name.  It was a delightful experience.  
Here are the photos that were featured.  I thought they displayed them beautifully.

Here is the photo I submitted.
