Stringing Magazine Spring 2010

The new issue of "Stringing" magazine is now on the newsstand. Danielle Fox, the editor of "Stringing" and her staff did an outstanding job. This magazine is packed full of beautiful necklace, earring and bracelet designs. I love the cover necklace designed by Danielle entitled "May Day". The necklace is fashion forward with a retro 70's vibe. Also, check out the statement jewelry feature "The Bigger, The Better". Artist Wendy Baker dazzles us with chunky floral jewelry. Her work is stunning.

I have three projects in this issue. The first is in the feature "Take Two" written by Michelle Mach. I was honored to be in the company of Danielle, Michelle, Molly Schaller and Andrew Thornton. Our challenge was to redesign a necklace that we did not like. My design went from frumpy to fantastic.

I usually name all my Jewelry designs after someone special. My second design is named after my son Garrett's teacher Jane Mills. Mrs. Mills room number is 6B, so I thought it would be a cute play on words to name the necklace "Jane's Six Bees". Garrett was very excited that I named the piece after her! The beautiful lampwork beads are made by Kerri Fuhr. Her artistic ability & craftsmanship are second to none. She is one of my favorite lampwork artists. The third Necklace "On Judy's Wing" is named after my Mother in law. Judy was the person who encouraged me to send my first design to "Stringing" Magazine, which ultimately made the cover in Fall 2007.


  1. I wondered about that 6 bees name. I could only count 3 no matter how hard I looked. When are you going to name a necklace after me?

  2. I should ask you this question - when are you going to name a piece after me?
