Old News?

Several months ago I was contacted by Christen Olivarez of Stampington & Company.  She had seen some of my work on my Flickr account and wanted to feature it in the Belle Armoire Jewelry Spring issue.  I had never been published in a magazine before and so was extremely excited at the opportunity.  I had hoped to get just one of my pieces in the issue but to my surprise they featured FOUR in the magazine!  My jaw hit the floor when I saw how gorgeous the pictures were.

Taking pictures of a magazine was a challenge so please excuse the sloppy photos.  So, "What's Yet to Come?"  Who knows.  More publications in the future?  I hope.  New techniques and surprises?  Of course ;)
