Photo Diary Part 4

The last part of the photo-diary before I send my designs off to the beading magazine! I am so excited and I cannot wait to get feedback from them :) Hopefully I will be able to post a magazine article in my next blog post ;)

This last set of jewelry is made with the brown Gold Sandstone nuggets and the Shiva Shell coins that I have received for the bead soup. I reckon I saved the best for last, but see for yourself!

Photo Diary Part 1

In my last post, I was telling you that I have been asked to participate in a 'Bead Soup'. For that I have received four strings of beads and by adding my own beads, I have created some pieces of jewelry that I would love to share with you! Next week, the pieces will be send off to the magazine and hopefully they will like it enough to publish it! Wish me luck and I hope you like my creations! ©


These are the beads I have received: 6mm round Aventurine, small brown Goldstone nuggets, Shiva shell coins and long Rose Quartz chips.
Together with my own beads, I have made this necklace:
 


 
Keep an eye out for the matching pair of earrings that will be posted in the second part of the photo-diary tomorrow!

Exciting News!

Hello to all you jewelry-lovers!

Sorry I have been out of touch for a while, but I have got some exciting news to share with you! At the moment, I have been given the opportunity to participate in a so-called 'bead soup' for one of the leading bead magazines of the UK! This means that I have received some strings of beads with which I have to design up to 4 pieces of jewelry and if they are interesting and unique enough, I might be featured in the magazine!!

I am so excited because this is new to me and might give me some new free publicity! I'll keep you posted on all the developments and I will post a photo diary of the beads and designs online soon. Wish me luck and keep your fingers crossed! ©
