“Unlock the Bubblely!”


Description from Blooming Ideas: Champagne for Everyone! Why am I celebrating? Two Small achievements have come my way and I'd like to share! One is in the Winter issue of Jewelry Stringing Magazine a pair of my earrings will be published. And in the Spring issue of the same magazine a bracelet has been accepted for publication! Small items...but I'm thrilled the pieces were selected.

    Thank You all so much for your kind and encouraging comments! Now let me run down to the ol’ wine cellar and get out that special Champagne that’s been under lock and key. ;)
    I’ve requested they send back the items that did not make it for publication…if I can take decent enough pictures…I’ll share those.

    One will come out in Winter – January, I think. The other some time in the Spring – perhaps March/April…not sure on the month. They have them described as Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall issues. I’m glad I picked up the fall issue…Lima Beads had some nice discounts in there. :-D
