Bead Trends August...

This is August and the current issue of Bead Trends magazine. Once again I am so fortunate to have one of my necklace creations featured in this amazing publication.
River Flow is the name given to the lampwork bead my husband actually purchased for me one day.

The blues and greens are my favorite colors and certainly remind me of water and nature.

I combined my favorite Italian mesh ribbon in two shades of navy and olive along with some beautiful mohair yarn to create the carrier for this bead.
It is thrilling and exhilarating to have something I have spent my time making be featured in print. I am very humbled and grateful.
Now I am off to my studio to continue to create beautiful jewelry.
I am undecided about listing this piece in my etsy shop. I think I am attached to it. :o)
Happy creating...


  1. Congratulations Sweetie...
    I am so thrilled for you. Ofcourse my gosh your work is over the top gorgeous so it is no surprise that they would want to feature you, but as the artist that you are, I am sure it is so GREAT to see your name and work in print, especially in a magazine that you so respect.

    Oh what a beautiful necklace and yes the colors do remind me of the water and the earth. What a beautiful way to describe this necklace.

    I love the selection of ribbons that you chose. The two colors together really accent you bead. You did an awesome job.
