On Friday I got the chance to meet Beth Livesay, Managing Editor of Jewelry Affaire, Altered Couture, Haute Handbags and Somerset Home. These magazines are some of the most inspiring magazines on the newsstand today. Beth is absolutely darling. Young, successful and a natural beauty. When I arrived at the office she was wearing one of my special occasion necklaces that I gifted to her with jeans and a peasant top. She likes Coco Chanel, Project Runway and my vintage/romantic style of jewelry. I think we are kindred souls. We weeded through a ton of jewelry designs that I had brought with me to Stampington & Co. We narrowed the choices down to about 50 pieces. These pieces include necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Beth and her art department choose a few designs to be published in the Fall, sophomore issue of Jewelry Affaire.
Our picture was taken in Beth’s office next to all the fabulous Altered Couture submissions. I informed her that many artisans are intimidated by Jewelry Affaire and Belle Armoire Jewelry Magazines. She encourages everyone to submit their designs for consideration. If you would like to submit your designs to Jewelry Affaire, Altered Couture, Haute Handbags or Somerset Home please check the Stampington & Co. web site for details.
