I'm going to be a FEATURED ARTIST!!!!
Woo hoo! This has been a good month for my New Year's Resolution of getting published or winning a contest -- I just got a notification that I will be October's featured artist on SoftFlex Companys' web site! I am just over the moon, especially since April's featured artist will be Kate McKinnon, who has won tons of awards and I admire a great deal. When I saw her name, I just KNEW I wouldn't be on the list, but kept scrolling down and I WAS and I am so excited!
The piece that I submitted was a necklace made with their new silver beading wire and a fused glass dichroic heart made by friend Jeanne Kent. It's a really simple necklace, since with Jeanne's gorgeous hearts, I like the glass to have the spotlight.
Earlier this month I had a necklace submitted to Fire Mountain Gems, which is where I ordered my very first beads. Not sure when that piece will be published, but excited nonetheless!
