Once again I am so excited that I have beads in a popular bead magazine. I love Bead Trends Magazine, it is one of my favorite magazines. It is so full of beautiful designs, I have a stack of them and always enjoy looking at the photos and being inspired. The best thing about the magazine is that in the back they list the resources for the pieces featured. Lucky me... one of my customers Shannon Chomanczuk, had several of her pieces included in the July, 2012 issue. Two of them featured my pottery beads. Shannon has a great eye for design, and you can see her lovely pieces in her shop For My Sweet Daughter or follow her on her blog .
This is the beautiful piece Shannon created with my focal bead. I love the rich colors. I have this bead in many colors and textures in my Etsy shop, and they are curved to hug your wrist.
She also created this fun necklace with beads and leather, my little copper link was used as part of the clasp. I adore turquoise, browns and coppers together. Shannon made a stunning focal Fleur de Lis by etching copper. The fun multi-strand porcelain bar is by Round Rabbit Extra and the glass lampwork bead is by Nollys folly.
