My Lofty Goal for 2011

I love reading trade magazines. By trade I mean those written about Jewelry art and design.
I pour over the pages in every issue reading the advice, devouring the photographs, and taking in the colors.
I am nerdy enough to read the advertisements, the editorials, and announcements.

A little over a year ago I started having a tickle in the back of my brain that some of my work would look good in those pages. I started writing tutorials, practice for teaching only through the printed word.

Painting a picture with words is an interesting puzzle, one that I am still working on.

I have taken the leap and submitted some of my work for publication.
Wish me luck!


  1. I"m wishing you luck!! I'm sure it's a heart in the throat moment to send the first one off!! Let us know when you hear something!!

  2. It is difficult to put yourself out there but I will never know unless I try. Thanks for the encouragement.

  3. I've published a couple of bead tutorials... I keep planning on doing another one but that would mean cleaning up the glass on my work bench! Good luck!
