It’s Really OK to Judge this Book by its Cover



While I was designing and creating the jewelry pieces that would be featured in my book I often wondered which one would be selected for the cover. I wasn’t sure how much input I would have regarding this decision; however, I was delighted when the "Sky" pendant necklace was selected. From the moment I completed that necklace I knew it was destined for greatness. I believe this to be the case because the inspiration behind this piece… the recollection of a wonderful childhood memory, held such strong meaning. To find out more about the story behind this piece and to learn how to create a mixed media pendant using crackle paste, be sure to check out my book, A String of Expression- Techniques for Transforming Art and Life into Jewelry.

Thank you for your sweet comment on my design blog & I would love to work with you.
I am really getting into jewelry design myself. I don't know much yet, but it so inspires me.
Have a fun-filled 4th of July weekend!

This is the most beautiful jewelry design cover I've ever seen. It inspired me to stop and pick up your book, which was featured on a display at a large bookstore chain, look through it, and buy it!!!!

The cover of this book is beautiful! It inspired me to pick it up off the display at a large bookstore chain, and buy it! I can hardly put it down, and leave my art room - - it has filled me with so much inspiration.
