First things first. When we got home from our Maine trip this spring, a box was waiting at the door with my copy of "Showcase 500 beaded jewelry". You remember.... THE ONE WITH MY NECKLACE ON THE COVER!!!! (sorry for shouting- excited) I couldn't wait to open it- and I was definitely NOT disappointed.
It is awesome! If you love beadwork- you will love this book. So much inspiration. Almost all of my favorite beaders are included- all with beautiful clear pictures of their work. The beadwork goes from simple to outrageous. I can't say I like every single piece in this book...but really, if they were all my taste- it wouldn't be half as interesting!! I am truly amazed how many talented beaders are out there- it is certainly humbling.
Anyhow- here are my 3 pieces that were included..
So there is the backstory on the pieces included in the book. I am so excited and proud to be included with all the wonderful artists in this beautiful book. And hopefully, I will find the umph to blog more often! Till then......
