Pleasant Surprise

I was pleasantly surprised yesterday when I received the October 2007 issue of Bead and Button magazine by mail. Although I love this magazine, I am not a subscriber. “Why did I get a contributor’s copy?”- I wandered. Here is why: this issue has a supplement with pictures from Bead Dreams 2007 contest, and my faux cloisonne necklace is one of them!

The works entered into this contest are unbelievable! I am so honored to see my work in such an amazing company!

And here is a bigger picture of my necklace.

Updated Web Site!

I just finished updating my website. Please take a look:

The updates include new photo collage for the front page, new layout of each page, and new scheme for navigation of the site.

Any comments and suggestions are welcome.

My interview had been published in Buzzy’s Bead Blog. Here is the link:

This blog belongs to Chris and Madonna from Beads and More ( This is a new store, so the choices of beading supplies there are still limited, but I really like what these guys are doing in terms of sales and marketing. In addition to pretty typical things – such as discounts for bulk purchasing or free beads for various reasons – they also started a forum and a blog. Both places allow beading artists advertise their web sites, and I am sure this will work to the mutual benefits of both the on-line store and their customers (the artists).

The interviewing process was fun and easy. Chris and Madonna sent me their questions by E-mail, and I took as much time as I needed to answer them. It turned out, actually, that I needed much more time than I anticipated – some of these questions are not as simple as they may seem at first…

I really enjoyed reading the other interviews on Beads and More site and hope that someone will find mine just as interesting.
