However, I did manage to squeeze in a bracelet and a pair of earrings in the most recent issue of Jewelry Stringing. I have a soft spot in my heart for Jewelry Stringing. It was the first magazine that I submitted to and was published in... oh, ten years ago or so. When I look back at those old issues, I see how much I've grown and how much my style has changed. In fact, it seems like the whole jewelry world has grown along with me, because when I look at the magazines nowadays, there's a new level of sophistication and the technical skills included in the instructions have advanced so much.
Even though things have progressed, the old issues still sparkle with inspiration and I love going through the back-issues and revisiting ideas and remembering all the friends and memories that I've made along the way.
