It's always exiting to get a package from a publishing company, rip it open, and start looking for myself in there. This time, I'm on page 18 of the 7th Anniversary issue of Bead Unique.
I love Bead Unique Magazine; in addition to cool projects, they always have articles about lampwork beads and lampwork bead artists.
And you all know how much I love lampwork beads!
So it is particularly appropriate that the bracelet pictured in this issue uses lampies from one of my all-time favorite artists, Melissa Vess.
I was thrilled when my Hugs and Kisses bracelet won second prize in their Spring 2011 Bead Accessory contest, but seeing it in print is even more exciting.
Thank you, Bead Unique!
