Guest Editor in Bead Chat Magazine.!!..September 2013

I guess someone up there is being generous to me !! And I have to thank Facebook for playing such a role in  helping me get in touch with such brilliantly talented people ... to have them on my friend's list and also to interact with them..!! The best thing is that they are in a different part of the world..

It was a chance chat on FB, with Melinda Orr , that led to this...I was blown away by the Bead Chat magazine, when I saw it on Artisan Whimsy...When i mentioned that I would be interested in contributing to the magazine, I did not think it would have such a big part in it...
and I have to thank Melinda Orr ,and Cynthia Machata  for being so receptive of my article and ideas.

And though I knew a few weeks back, that my work would be in the magazine, I did not expect it to be included a new series called places, not that I would be mentioned on the cover itself !!

It was an article about the Blue Pottery of Jaipur and a few of my pieces in Cold Porcelain , inspired by it.

An earring of mine, was also featured in the series, called Vineyards.


The brief was jewelry with leaves. These are lovely ochre shade crystals with German silver leaves.A simple 
style.

The Blue Pottery inspired pieces were a miniature tile in Cold Porcelain and two earrings.


The flower motif was found on some old tiles of blue pottery. I modified the look of the leaves and added a few stones to add interest.

I will tell about the Blue Pottery inspired earrings in another post. Meanwhile, the link to the September 2013 Issue of the Bead chat Magazine, will be found in the side bar.
