One day at a major book store I found the most beautiful magazine I had ever seen for jewelry focus. I found it to be very expensive however you always get what you pay for...quality! I immediately subscribed so I won't miss an issue.
I have posted before about Bead Trends and here I am again. This is such an amazing publication and the people who work there are super nice as I came to find out.
This past February I decided to submit one of my necklaces. They do it so nicely that the entire process is easy and affordable.
I submitted "Mint Julep" and it was accepted for the July 2010 printing. Here is a photo of the two page spread it received. Just imagine how thrilled and over the moon I am with this beautiful photography and layout Bead Trends has done with my necklace.
I made this with Chalk Green Turquiose, Swarovski crystals and black lace. I do believe I have a very unique design and a lovely necklace. In person the colors are striking and beautiful.
Having set my goals and working hard to achieve them I find I am inspired to continue working hard and see where I go from here.
It is my true honor to be published in such a wonderful magazine.
The amount of confidence I have gained through this experience is priceless!
Thank you so very much.
