Bead and Button Magazine February 2012

Bead and Button Magazine
February 2012

The February issue of Bead and Button Magazine features two of my designs in the Michaels national campaign ad.  These necklaces were designed using Bead Gallery beads, found exclusively at Michaels.  There is a 20% off coupon so be sure to pick up a copy.

Do you like the color pallet?  Different shades of orange are going to be a hot color this year.  

I would also like to know if any of you ever use Bead Gallery beads in your designs?


  1. There is not a bead shop within 2 hours of my house so when I need to touch beads, I have to drive 20 miles to Michael's. Here are links to three pieces that include gallery beads.

    I just used some cinnabar beads in earrings I posted here:

    ...and I even gave credit to Micheal's!
    I've got some Michael's beads here (the wooden discs), but I think I mention that I altered the finish.

    ...and here are some more from Michael's in this fun piece full of color.

  2. Both of your designs are beautiful! I love how you have incorporated a splash of other colors to really make your pieces pop! Excellent, as always!
    I don't typically even visit the bead section at Michaels. I live in a pretty rural area, except for the beach. The closest Michaels is 45 minutes and is lack luster, if you know what I mean.

  3. That's awesome!!
    I do use the bead gallery beads because Michael's does offer up some great sales and coupons. I try to pick up a couple strands each time I'm up there.

    Anyway, congrats on the ad!

  4. Nice!

    so, orange is the hot color this daughter's gonna love that ;)

  5. Congrats!
    I really love orange!

  6. These are both beautiful but the 2nd one is my favorite.Love all the different shades of orange in it. I buy the bead gallery beads often. Michaels has a great selection and prices!

  7. Beautiful necklaces Denise, congratulations on being in a Michael's add. I do buy the bead gallery beads when I go into Michael's, I just don't go there often it is on the other side of town.

  8. Fantastic! Congratulations! They are beautiful!


  9. Hi Denise, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  10. I like the layered concept which gives the conception that you are wearing many when you are just wearing one and also looks very fancy.Charm Bracelets
