It's here!

I just received my advance copy of Bead and Button, and my bracelet is in there!

I don't know why, but I was afraid it wouldn't be.

I'm like that. I hope for the best, but prepare for the worst; I tend to need preparation in order to face disappointment properly. But this time, I didn't need to. It's all about celebration in my house today!

The pattern they used is my Caribbean Sea bracelet; when the August issue comes out, I'll put my version of the bracelet in my Etsy store. They didn't really change anything; they just reworded a few things and added step-by-step photos in place of my diagrams to make it fit their editorial style.

Oh, they did give it a new title. It's called Filigree Fling, and it's on page 72. It will probably be a couple of weeks before the magazine comes out; I hope you'll look for it and think of me when you see it!

It is a big deal! There is a steep competition to get into Bead and Button! Best wishes. I home my issue comes soon in the mail. I will open it to page 72 right away.

Congratulations! It's so exciting to be published. I've had things in Belle Armoire and Belle Armoire Jewelry and I know just how you feel. Your work is wonderful.

I am so excited for you Cindy. Well done. I can't wait to receive my copy. I was excited enough when my tutorials were in an Aussie beading magazine (and made 2 covers too) so I can only imagine how exciting Bead & Button would be... big congrats again!
