Easy Wire 2010

Today I got my copy of Easy Wire 2010. I have two projects in it, one for a bracelet and one for a necklace.


I first want to give an enormous shout out to my good friend Cindy Wimmer, who is on the cover of the magazine. This is her second cover, if I'm not mistaken, and I'm so incredibly proud of her!

This is a fantastic issue, with over 50 designs and lots of different styles and skill levels using a number of materials.

EDITED: I removed the photo of the necklace because I JUST found out that a stupid big box craft store, a store I rarely frequent, ripped off a well-known bead artist, and I am SO not down with that. My goal with making the necklace was to create something that a beginner could make with minimal output of money, but it just goes to show you - it's best to save your cash and use things where you KNOW where they came from, and keep integrity intact.

This bracelet is made with handmade lampwork beads and sterling silver in "Lake Tahoe".


Both of these designs will be on my web site soon, but if you are interested in one of them now, just let me know!

It was an honor working with Interweave Press, and I hope to do so again! Look for this publication at your local book store or at the Interweave Store.
