Stringing Magazine :: Spring Issue

I am (of course) an avid reader of Stringing Magazine and for years I've seen the bylines of all the wonderful bead artists that I blog with. But in this last issue I finally joined the ranks of all those amazing beaders and artisans! 
 
The latest call to artists included a few various themes, one of which was for the most recent trend emerging for Art Deco from a revival brought on by The Great Gatsby. 

Stringing Magazine put out the call to use a theme of the Great Gatsby while using colors from a Vintage Moxie color pallet. Since I recently received some gorgeous deer leather from Nina Designs and had a stash of pearls (including some pale pinks) I could immediately tell that I had the the right color pallet and I absolutely love this genre.  So I knew I was in to submit for this last issue.

I was so excited when I heard from the magazine that they wanted to include my bracelet, but I had no idea that it would be a feature. I was so thrilled once I saw the issue and realized that my bracelet was the only one in among an amazing array of necklaces in the first section of the magazine.

Thank you Stringing Magazine for picking my design and making my day.

How wonderful Cynthia! I can see why it was featured; it's a stunning piece. I'll have to look for the magazine. =)

Ah, how did the 'homework' on croonie stones come along? Did you know that folk wisdom once said that peering through the hole in the stone would allow one to see the faerie worlds? (But only if it was a natural croonie stone of course, lol.)
