My first published book, co authored with fellow designers Katie Hacker and Margot Potter got a page at Create Your Style with CRYSTALLIZED™ Swarovski Elements website.
This book highlights 50 designs made with regular jewelry components used, in special, stringing wire manufactured by Beadalon® all framed by top quality crystal components by Swarovski, an iconic brand itself.
In 2 weeks I will be at the Bead and Button™ Show in Milwaukee promoting the book at the Crystallized booth.
If you are in the area stop by to meet me in person and celebrate the world of CRYSTALLIZED™ .
Following is a glance on some of my designs made specially for this book.
Oh, Betsey necklace - wrapped jet and pink wire.
Blue lagoon bracelet - an over the top conception for a charm style bracelet - grey pearls and Montana blue crystals.
Lady of the rings necklace - chain maille style necklace inspired by Miranda Otto's character in "The Lord of the rings" movie.
Locomotion necklace - double ball chain weaved with silver plated stringing wire. This idea born from images from my childhood of railroads and freight trains....love, love,love!!!
