Bead Trends Magazine - February 2011

I have to say that this issue of Bead Trends magazine features my favorite cover ever.  I think the flower necklace is fabulous and "No" it is not mine!

My first project in this magazine is called "Dance of the Dragonflies".  It features Vintaj Natural Brass and Ranger Alcohol Inks.

I am very excited to be featured in the "Jewel School" section of Bead Trends this month!

Be sure to pick up your copy of the February Bead Trends Magazine to get instructions on how to patina brass with sea salt and apple vinegar!


  1. congratulations on the articles..
    thanks for the tutorial ..i've got to try this.
    lovely work

  2. Oh it looks awesome! I've got to pick it up because that tutorial looks like fun!

  3. that jewel school necklace rocks. I bought some cider vinegar and I am excited to try this patina! Nice job, girlfriend!

  4. Gracious! I love the tones you achieved with the alcohol inks. They're one of my favorite crafting supplies too!

    AND the patina, so lovely! I'm tempted to run out to the bookstore to pick up this issues now. (maybe I can sneak out after lunch!)


  5. I especially love your jewel school design - wow! I must have a go!!
