Stringing Fall 2010 Blog Carnival


Stringing Fall 2010
Blog Carnival

The new fall issue of Stringing Magazine has just hit the newsstands.  Danielle Fox and her crew have totally re-vamp the issue.  The photos are bigger with close-up shots and the photography layouts are stylish.  The issue is absolutely beautiful.

My cover necklace is called "Give A Hoot".  My inspiration for this piece was the owl centerpiece was handcrafted by Sandhra LeeShe creates fabulous pendants.  Be sure to visit her Etsy shop I am often inspired by the materials I am designing with at the time.  I do not sketch or pre plan my designs.  I like to call myself a free flow designer. 


  
My bracelet is number 7.  It was created with Vintaj Natural Brass.  The turquoise colored stones are matte crackle agate and carnelian nuggets.


I would like to thank Michelle Mach for
