One of my other passions is books, especially jewelry books. I feel that I have a very good collection; about 160 books and not one book is the duplicated (CONTENT EDIT BY HUSBAND: She didn’t tell you how may magazines she has! She must have a thousand or so the fill an entire 6′ book case). I have books on how to make clay beads, wire jewelry, simple instruction, crystal and more. In the future I would like to publish a book with only designs—it will give inspiration to experienced artisans and novices.
Do you have any favorite jewelry books?
Have you ever published a book of your work?
New Bead Necklace for 2010 Holidays
I just finished 9 new designs that will be soon on my website. They are made with glass pearls, metal, kambaba jasper stone, carmelian, autumn jasper stone, wood, and lapis jasper. I am trying to finish a necklace with metal and multicolor glass pearls—will be good for wearing around the holidays. How do you like the necklace in this photo? Doesn’t it say “Holiday cheer” to you?”
I am working on a lot of new ideas and designs. I will be doing 3 last craft shows for this year all the info can be found on the right side of my home page or subscribe to my RSS feed.
