Woo hoo, I got published!!!
In a magazine!!!
A little while ago I made reference to a secret project that had been taking up some of my crafting time, well, this week my magazine subscription of Beads and Jewellery Magazine arrived (October/November, Issue 89) with my article of a bead weaving bracelet tutorial.
I’ll rewind a little, at the beginning of this year I won a competition for some beads when I sent is a photo of a bracelet I had made. The editor emailed me to let me know that I had won and asked if I would like to have a go at being one of her designers. I totally jumped at the chance, rang my husband, squealed down the phone and then panicked because I really didn’t have a clue how to write a beading tutorial.
I made a resolution that this year I was going to be brave and take whatever opportunity came my way so there was no way I was going to turn this down.
I can also confirm that I have two articles coming in the next magazine too!!! Yep, even more squealing.
Anyhoo, I don’t think I can share any of the photos of the article as they belong to the magazine for now so here is something new I have been working on.
A necklace with a polymer clay focal bead and bead weaving.
I hope you have all had a good weekend.
