Sunday with Cindy: Cindy and Heather in Beadwork
One of my customers sent a note after she'd purchased a set of the Ivory Bling Links. She'd seen them in the June/July 2009 issue of Beadwork magazine and "had to have them!" I appreciate comments from my customers and like to know where they've seen my beads. I didn't have a copy of Beadwork at home so I hurried over to the bookstore to see if I could find a copy. Before I bought it, I flipped through the pages and was very happy to find them in Katie's Corner.
I said in my review of Bead and Wire Jewelry Exposed that Katie Hacker is magic with earrings. In Katie's corner, she's made another beautiful set of earrings and this time uses my Ivory Bling links along with fellow editor, Heather Powers gorgeous beads. Lucky us! Make sure you check that out while you're drinking your morning coffee over at the bookstore this morning.
