I've been published








Late last year I was approached by Get Creative magazine and asked if they could do a profile on my art and teaching, needless to say I was thrilled. They also asked if I could create a piece of jewellery with instructions to go into their magazine. The bracelet above is the result. There are  six pages in total with photos and commentary on my jewellery and journals and instructions for making the bracelet.

The magazine is Australian and is available in Borders, Spotlight and some newsagents.










Just when I thought thought I couldn't possibly fit any more drawers into my studio, guess what arrived on Christmas Day.
They are beautiful, very French, along with the clock in the first photo. The hunk in the fourth cubby hole is my husband taken many years ago, long before we met.

Congratulations Ro - that looks like a great magazine. So many of our craft mags are not for crafts with a capital C! Love the bracelet. Your French storage unit is beautiful and you got the hunk too! Lucky lady.

This is good news! Thanks for sharing it. Also, for sharing the "more drawers" and the hunkish photo. I'll bet he still borders strongly on the hunk side. Love to you - Jeanne
