......... making bookmarks. I have a few dates in my diary for parties and fairs leading up to Christmas, so today I have been stocking up. Bookmarks are a great seller, they make a lovely gift/stocking filler. I use orphan lampwork beads and they never cease to get comments, often closely followed by a sale!!!
Whilst we're in jewellery mode I would like to tell you about my appearing in an international magazine!!! Many months ago I submitted a photograph to Step by Step Wire in the US. The photograph was of a piece I showed you this time last year. I asked them if they would like it for a project or for their gallery pages. It was a while before I heard anything back, but when I did they said they would be interested in featuring it in the gallery sometime in the future. I am pleased to say that my piece is in the gallery pages of the latest issue of Step by Step Wire, which is in the shops right now. It's a lovely feeling seeing one's work on the pages of such a prestigious magazine, hopefully next time they will be interested in featuring a project.
