So sorry!

I really don't know where the time goes!! I've been doing some collaborative work with Lynn Davy (Nemeton) a UK designer, for a ISGB/Bead & Button competition, the closing date of which is February 1st, but obviously I've needed to get the beads to Lynn (they arrived in the UK yesterday) so that she has time to do her seed bead and stringing magic with them to turn them into our representation for the Four Elements.

Last week, I received my complimentary copy of Kimberley Adams : Verre et Flamme - Creation de perles de verre, and although my beads are credited to Billy Jean Lewis (Lewis is my maiden name, Billy...? *sigh*)  they are mine, all mine and appears on pages 46 and 125.

And there's more!

A project titled "Japanese Silk" appears in this months (November, 2008) edition of Step by Step Beads magazine, and it features my focal bead - which was originally titled Chinese Silk but the mag changed it.

"To get your creative juices flowing here are a few of
the enticing projects you'll find in the upcoming
November/December issue:

Japanese Silk: As elegant as a cherry blossom, this pearl and seed bead necklace features a lovely lampworked pendant"

I'm happy with that description :-D

The Japanese Silk necklace is really stunning. I just love oriental designs. Can I just say I would have loved to have seen it in a larger picture because it is difficult to see the detail in the glass pendant. Well done for the work you are getting published. Nice to see you back.
