SeaFlowerPinPendant_BeautyShot_edited-1I recently sent this piece off to the photographer who does work for Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist magazine. My step-by-step project for the “Sea Flower” Pin/Pendant has been accepted for publication and features the following techniques: making a resin cabochon, sawing and texturing metal, making and soldering a bezel, creating a wirework pin back, and adding patina to metal. Magazine content is planned months in advance so this project is tentatively scheduled to appear in the May/June 2015 issue. I’m thrilled to have my work accepted in such a great magazine! Thank you, Helen Driggs, editor at Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist magazine!  P.S.  If you like the resin cabochon I’ve made, I have several more colorful “Cosmic Cabochons” listed in my shop. Each cabochon is one of a kind, individually handmade by me. They are wonderful components for use in bead embroidery as well.  Shown below is my bead embroidered “Mermaid’s Cuff”:
