I have a pair of earrings in the June 2013 issue of the Soda Lime Times that came out today. The issue theme was making jewelry with lampwork beads; something that I'm really passionate about (as evidenced by my large Lampwork Jewelry board on Pinterest).
Diane, the editor of the e-mag, wrote to me several weeks ago asking if she could include a pair of my earrings that she saw on Pinterest. Of course I said yes!
For the many of you that may not be familiar with the Soda Lime Times, it is a monthly e-magazine published by Diane Woodall about lampworking. It is available by subscription for less than $5 per month. There are monthly themes, like things you can do with frit, floral themed beads, color, surface decoration, cold working ... and each issue features the work of many lampworkers. This month's issue was the 24th to be published. You can read a sample issue for free, available on the Soda Lime Times website.
Diane became familiar with my work when, for the April 2013 edition about non-bead lampworked items, I asked if I could submit some pictures of my lampworked buttons and headpins. I was fortunate enough to have both a button published in that issue.
It's always a little nerve wracking to put myself out there, but little by little I'm getting it done. Yay!
Thanks for stopping by!
