Big Book Excitement!!!!

I am super excited to share the news that the printing of the CREATE YOUR STYLE with Swarovski Elements Ambassadors' book, Crystal Jewelry Inspiration is ahead of schedule!!!!

As one of Canada's two CREATE YOUR STYLE Ambassadors, I am proud to announce that one of my Sparkle Sprocket projects is included in the book.

Crystal Jewelry Inspiration from the CREATE YOUR STYLE Ambassadors features projects from 25 of these talented designers from North America. The CREATE YOUR STYLE Ambassadors approach crystals from every conceivable angle in projects as diverse as the SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS they’ve used. Wide-ranging techniques, from modern bead stitching and elegant stringing to intricate wire crochet, help beaders polish their favorite skills plus learn something new. Styles range from vintage to funky to show-stopping glam, all sporting the sparkle that only crystals can provide. Jewelry makers will get first-hand information, expertise, and instruction from the most enthusiastic and passionate crystal jewelry designers working today. The gallery will inspire you with projects from Ambassadors around the world.

Let's see a show of hands for who wants an autographed copy???? We need to make sure that Marg orders enough copies of this, sure to be, best seller.

I'll be having a book launch and mini tour, together with some special classes. We are still working out the details, but I am sure you will want to join us.

Below you find the table of contents of the book. I am so honoured to among such amazing designers and teachers.

I've been told my copy will be sent out next week!!! I can't wait to see it.

A special thank you to the great staff at beadFX and all my amazing students from past classes. You have helped make my dreams come true.
