My First Jewelry Publication
Bead Trends September 2012
Sailboat At Sunset
Red Creek Jasper Necklace
designed for the inspired by catagory.
My mother was just diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and we were told she had 6 months to live. It wasn't a happy time for me. This was one of the highlights in my life during that time.
I sent a necklace to Bead Trends to see IF I COULD GET PUBLISHED, honestly no real thoughts at all that I would be accepted. A few weeks after my mothers diagnosis I got my email saying that my necklace was accepted. I can't begin to tell you the elation I felt.
I will always feel that I am an underdog in the jewelry designing world mostly because I have so much to learn. That is what I love about jewelry design it is everchanging and evolving. I have been making jewelry for almost 10 years and have yet to get bored.
