Bead Trends - June 2010

The June issue of Bead Trends has just hit the newsstands.  This marks my first publication with this magazine.  The June issue features "Fabulous Findings" - TierraCast,  "Designer Highlight" - Lisa Kan and "Jewel School" - Beach Weddings.  Bead Trends is packed full of wedding, quick and easy, bracelets, anything goes, sentimental favorites, crystal creations, fashion favorites, and birthstone designs.


Bead Trends is a quality magazine with beautiful photography.  In this issue I have two designs.  The first is "Unforgettable".  This piece is located in the "Weddings" section.  I love to design wedding jewelry.  Bling is my thing, anything sparkly draws my attention.  This necklace was created with fresh water pearls, Swarvoski fireballs & Rondelles, sterling silver bead caps, toggle and connectors.  It has a romantic/vintage flair.

My second design is located in the "Fashion Favorites" section.  "Britty's Butterfly" is named after my daughter Britton.  The centerpiece is a Marsha Neal handmade pendant wrapped with Vintaj Natural Brass.  The necklace also includes Czech glass beads, Swarvoski crystals.

The photographs seen above are pictures I have taken myself.  I thought it might be interesting to get a different perspective of the designs.  Plus it  helps me with my photography skills.

  4. thanks for following;), I read the past blogs on this page, I really like the jewelry photos on the tile floor,better than the pro shot even! I too wanted to step up my packaging once I started swaping. I found a flickr group(& I'm sure there are lots) that shows packaging that is fun to browse through. CAn't wait to see what you make for your soup, quite a group of goodies you got:)
