Jewelry Affaire Article

I'm in the Autumn 2010 Jewelry Affaire!


Sumerset has a lovely new magazine, Jewelry Affaire, and I'm in the second edition, Autumn 2010. I just got my complimentary edition, and it is so nice to be among such talented ladies. My article is about recycling vintage ladies watches and putting fun words and pictures inside, then adding adornment. Very fun to do, and very simple.


There are some great articles. Check out "Burlap Bling" by Joy Gabler, and "Breathing Beside Us" by Deb Hodge. There are a ton of great "how to's", so be sure and pick up and issue. I'm assuming its on the stands now. They are looking for simple projects, so if you've been holding back about sending stuff in, this is the time!

AND...I failed to mention a dear blogging friend, Erin Prais-Hinz, is in this issue as well, with some beautiful pieces and a wonderful "how to" article! Way to go Erin! You can see more of Erin's work at her popular blog, www.treasures-found.blogpot.com.


AND of course I wouldn't let a post go by without showing Maddie off at 4 months! I took a quick video of her, she's such a big girl now. She went to the groomer for the first time today. OMG, I almost didn't get her back, they loved her so much!! Boy are those teeth coming in. We almost have "sit up" down, I'll show you when we have it mastered, ha ha!

Thanks for looking!! Have a wonderful day.

Hooray, Riki!
What a unique use of watch faces. I have seen some people use them (and we have used them) and this one takes the cake! I am also glad that the next issue of Jewelry Affaire is out. We just got back in the country yesterday and I am hope it is out soon!
Good job!
