In the latest issue of Step By Step Wire magazine (Summer Preview 2009) you'll see my bracelet in the Reader's Gallery. I love this bracelet, and it's a big piece -- the box clasp on it is about 1.25" across and resembles a pill box. I wish it DID open like a little treasure box, but alas, it doesn't.
The sterling silver chain is a Japanese chain maille weave that I like because it's wide and bold but still airy.
I'll be putting this one up on the web site over the weekend, but if you have to have it now, please leave a comment below!
In the fall, I'll have an earring tutorial in Step By Step Wire -- very exciting for me, as I've been in the gallery a couple of times but finally got a tutorial written, photographed, and off in the mail. Writing tutorials takes a lot more time than you might think, because you can never be quite sure how the photos will turn out, and then you're stuck making ten more of the same thing to get it just right.
If you're a jewelry artist that wants to get published, take a look in the beading magazine web sites. They all have sections with instructions on how to approach them with your work.
Hope you all have a great weekend!.
