Just got the March 2010 issue of Bead Trends in the mail. May I direct your attention to pages 28 & 29, where you can see Tahiti by Dawn O'Bryan-Lamb. This is a necklace I made using aquamarine and pearls, aquamarine being the March birthstone featured in this month's issue.

Whoo Hoo!!!

This is my first submitted and published work, if you don't count the necklace I entered in the Step by Step Beads Colorworks contest. I am so thrilled to see my work in Bead Trends, which is such a lovely magazine, and one that showcases so many artists with gorgeous photography and very little in the way of intrusive ads.

Thanks go out to Artbeads, Rings & Things and Soft Flex for providing the perfect components to make the necklace, and for the support of the wonderful people from those companies, Steve, Duchess, Dave and Sara, for helping me stretch my creativity and gain confidence!

Thank you, also, to my dear friends of this blog who have left such wonderful supportive comments these past 500+ posts - you, too, have been a source of inspiration and delight!

'Til tomorrow!

This is AWESOME! It's a lovely piece too; good for you Dawno!

So you're going to start entering work in art shows, right?

Thanks, Lisa - the piece shown is not mine, though. If my scanner was working, I'd add a picture of my page, but with the new laptop not having the drivers installed, yet, I wasn't able to do a scan.

Art shows, nah - at least not now, no time.

Fantastic news Dawn. The magazine takes awhile to get down here so I'll keep my eye out. How exciting!

Congrats and YAY!!! How exciting! We don't stock this magazine at work so I may have to find another bookstore to get it from... maybe even a JoAnns?

Very very cool indeed :D
