There's something really exciting about having your work in an industry magazine. For the first time, I submitted photos for the Women in Glass issue of The Flow Magazine. I was nervous to send in my work, you want to have a voice, you want to have your own voice, and not have your work look like someone else's or even worse everyone else's. So I was nervous and sent in photographs of two of my pieces. Two necklaces that I was particularly please with, that I didn't think looked like any one else's work. When I got the proof and there was my poppy necklace. Love that necklace. Well the magazine came out... and they moved my necklace. TO PAGE 4!!! I was shocked, excited, there my have been a happy dance. Thank I turned to the gallery, and find the page its supposed to be on and there is the second necklace that I submitted. Whoohooo! Two photographs of my pieces. There was definitely a happy dance. I was so pleased. Not only to be included in the gallery, but to have my work on a completely unrelated page. I think I am finding my jewelry voice, it is full of clear vibrant colors, casual yet sophisticated designs, full of the beauty of nature.
