Bead Trends Magazine - May 2011

I am so excited that my friend Erin Strother made the cover of this month's Bead Trends Magazine!  Congratulations Erin!

I have one project in this issue.  It is called "Crush".

The design was crafted using Sari Silk, Vintaj Natural Brass, vintage glass stone and glass beads.

I love the romantic feel of this necklace.

On another note....... many of you might be wondering where the heck I have been.  I have to tell you it has been one horrible year for my family.  I am thinking of the worst and praying for the best.  I am having a hard time even meeting my magazine deadlines.  So, I have kinda let my blog go by the wayside.  I am sorry about that.  I guess I just need to pull it together!  Thanks to all my followers for not leaving me.



  1. Your necklace is awesome, and I hope everything will work out for your family!

  2. Nice to see you! You have been missed!

  3. A beautiful necklace!!!!

    I'm sorry you and your family are going through difficult times. I'll be thinking about you and praying for peace.

  4. Oh, I am sorry to hear about the rough road you've been on. You are such an inspiration. When you're stuck in a pothole it's hard to see your way out but it'll get better. It has to!

    Peace - Kathy

  5. Such a beautiful rich color in the necklace! Gorgeous!
    Sorry to hear of your troubles; I'm adding you to my prayers.

  6. Erin, I noticed your vibrant, gorgeous necklace immediately when I opened my copy of BT. Congrats on this design!
    I'm sorry to hear you are going through such a difficult time, please take care.

  7. Hey, thanks for the shout out, D! I must have missed this blog entry when you posted it. Your crush necklace is so "you!" Super cool how you encased the pink stone.
    Hang in there, girlfriend.

  8. Hope all is well! I love the hot pink crush necklace, it's absolutely adorable! You are very talented! Was it very hard to make?
