I'm having an Affaire!

Yes, you read that right; Stampington and Company's Jewelry Affaire Spring 2011 issue!  This is my first time being published and I'm so excited.  I, well we, owe it all to the talented and inspiring Natalie Hansen.  I attended Silver Bella in 2009 where I met the lovely ladies who participated in this amazing necklace round robin that Natalie hosted.  After seeing how all the necklaces were coming together, she took it one step farther and submitted our work to the magazine and there we are on page 128-129!

It was like Christmas every time I received the next necklace to work on and the best present was receiving my own necklace when it was completed and sent to me by Natalie.   I made the focal piece second from the left with the blue globe marble & metal piece that reads "hold dear" and the necklace I received is on the far left with the framed frozen charlotte.  I absolutely loved participating in this round robin and I hope it inspires you to put one together with some of your friends as well.

Hey Girl!
Congratulations! How exciting!
Glad to hear you guys made it back in one piece. I had such a fun time. And now I have weeks of projects ahead of me with all the "junk" I brought home. Love that!
We'll get together soon!
Big hugs! Karen
