New Magazine

February 2012 issue of Bead Design Studio (formerly Bead Unique)includes an article by Rachel Baron called Marketing 101, Pricing Your Work. I was asked to contribute a pricing tip in conjunction with the article. My issue came in the mail yesterday and I found a picture of one of my bracelets on the first page of the article! The next pages have tips from 2 other jewelry designers and mine. Be sure to check out this well written article as well as lots of cool projects!

Bead Soup Blog Party

This is my first year to hopefully participate in the very popular Bead Soup Blog Party! 200 lucky beaders are chosen to join in the fun. They each send out a collection of beads to include a focal, nice clasp and coordinating beads to an assigned partner. They design jewelry with the beads, take pictures then post it on their blog. On Party Day, everyone visits all the blogs to see what everyone else made! I can't wait!
