Bead Trends Idea Book

My copies of Bead Trends March/April edition arrived in the mail today and I'm very excited! Two of my designs are featured with photos and instructions. This publication is always looking for designers to submit their pieces for review. The process was fairly simple and their photographer did a great job with everyone's jewelry. So fun to see my stuff in print!!

Trying the Ring Thing

Well, here it is, March already. I'm still recovering from my surgery and find I'm passing out around 8pm these days. I've started teaching my night classes again so that's going to have to change. I'm also awaiting my 40th birthday with mixed emotions. Getting back to work is starting to help me feel "normal" again but I'm still not feeling like "me". I'm not really worried about aging and I'm excited about the future (as I look out the window at the rain). I just wish I could eat that chocolate cake that I'm not allowed to have. Doctors. Hmph.

Anyway, I've been experimenting with fusing rings these days and put a few in my etsy shop this week. I've also redesigned my work space in the basement. Maybe I'll get a picture up here next time.

My latest treasury!
