Update on my book

This past week has been a blast! I mentioned many moons ago that my book proposal on jewelry design was accepted by North Light Books (that in and of itself is amazing). Last week, for the first time, I had the opportunity to meet face to face with my editor, Tonia Davenport, who is just wonderful. I also worked very closely with Christine Polomsky, the photographer, who is so patient and made what I thought would be a terrifying experience so much fun. How does she do that?

I was awestruck by the design photographs and the potential cover. They are so beautiful…definitely a personal surreal moment. Could this really be true? Am I dreaming? The official title for my book is…drum roll please…A String of Expression- Techniques for Transforming Life and Art into Jewelry. I just love it! I look forward to sharing more information about this adventure very soon. Here are some pics of the photo shoot.

I carried 33 lbs. of art supplies with me to the shoot.

Congratulations ( I'm sure you've already heard it plenty)on your book!

I was wondering if you have any advice for how to approach when attempting to pitch an Art-book. One aspect I'm stuck on is getting proper pictures of my wares...
