Shotgun Shell Bracelets Featured In Jewelry Affaire

Flirty Shotgun Shell Bracelets in 
 Jewelry Affaire!

Holy Smokers!   My colorful and girly bracelets will be featured soon in this upcoming Winter issue of Jewelry Affaire.  Ou la!! Here they are!

 I was so excited to have captured the eye of those very talented editors at Stampington with these flirty little wrist adornments.  Many thanks to Beth Livesay who has been supportive to my bezel reclamation antics and shotgun shell jewelry endeavors!

These were so fun to make, and always add lotsa pizzazz to any outfit....especially to all those black ones I tend to buy : )

I will be teaching how to assemble these bracelets locally in upcoming March 2013 classes at the Adams County Arts Council's Education Center, 
in Gettysburg, PA.

More Shotgun Shell Jewelry

Loving These Bracelets

I was inspired to make these for a good friend's birthday day.  How cool are these and how cool would they look adorning, say.... some Magnolia Pearl fashion?  ; ) 
Ou La La!
My friends and I so love that Magnolia Pearl zeal.
If anyone wants some, let me know!!!  Oh, I mean the bracelets, not the Magnolia Pearl clothes...  sigh.

Published in Just Steampunk Publication!

Some of My Precious Bottles and Bezels Now in 
 "Just Steampunk"
Volume 2, 2012 

"Wow, and holy heck," or some such similar words and a few "my goshes," came out of my mouth when I recieved my complimentary copy of Just Steampunk Magazine 

I had submitted my things a few months back, then life happened, and I had forgotten all about it.  It was the most fun with giggles I had for awhile!

So, now, I must tell you that it was my friend and artist, Erin Keck, who told me about this wild and wonderful eye candy style publication.  It is packed full of wonderful, wonderful pieces, including several of Erin's clocks and pins and a head gear piece by another young and talented artist, Brody Ebersole. 

For me, the artists' pieces each tell a story.....complicated ones sometimes..... and I marvel at the talent that lies upon the the pages within this beautiful magazine.  

Yep, will be carrying mine around for awhile, but you can find a copy at any major book sellers and online from Scott Publications a
