I've been published !!!!!!


Beads and Beyond June 2010, originally uploaded by itsamistry.

Woohoo can you tell I'm excited LOL it's not as if I've never had any of my work published before - I've had a couple of my ATC's published in the online ArtTrader Magazine. But this is a first for my jewellery and to have it in such a lovley magazine to.

Here's the full story -
I made the beaded bead and updated it on my social networks (facebook, flickr etc) and the comments I received about the bead took me quite by surprise as I was convinced someone had already made something similar. But I was told quite resoundly that no it was my own invention. Then someone suggested that I submitt it to a magazine and having looked (and bought/subscribed) to quite a few magazines I decided to send it to Beads and Beyond as I liked the lovely clean and clear way the article were presented.

So I submitted my tutorial to them a couple of months ago and I received an email from the assistant editor Rebecca Hughes telling me that they would like to publish it in one of their issues......................and here it is in the June issue of Beads and Beyond. I love the way they have done the photographs so much more interesting than mine.
