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!
