May Bead Trends

This new issue of Bead Trends features my work on page 20-21 my Meadow Lace necklace and Spring Showers bracelet on 72-73. 
The ladies of Sea and Skye on Facebook also show designs, Amanda Austin of Seashore Glass, Kristi Abner of Kristys Kreations, and Janice Everett of J Lynn Jewels. Also Erin Strother has a gorgeous design on the cover. 
A big week around here. Some news from publishers and vendors. I received some new artisan products from Lisa at Clayworks and Erin at Tesori Trovati. It totally inspired me and I had a hay day creating. I designed several bracelets, one which is loaded with artisan components, several gorgeous necklaces, several earrings and now I have an amazing necklace on my table with another Tesori Trovati pendant. It will take some time as it has potential to be one of my favorites. Can't wait to get back to it.
In California the weather here is sunny and breezy. Wonderful light which I love. My granddaughter is walking all over the downstairs, she is 15 months old and a little dolly. She is bringing me her treasures and trying to tell me all about it. When she goes down for her nap I run to the studio and go like crazy. Today, I need to edit, clean up a bit so I can see my desk and if I am lucky work on that necklace. Have a great weekend everyone and "follow the light".


  1. I am so excited with all the success you are having Cherrie. When we first met through Vintaj I was surprised by how impressed you were with me since I felt the same way about your work! So proud of how far we have both come since then :)

  2. Cherrie - I am blown away by your beautiful creations. Very inspiring, and I can't tell you how fun it is to see one of my pendants in your work! Really beautiful photography as well.

  3. congratulations...your designs are beautiful!

  4. Thanks Ladies, Yes Marie we have come along way. I can't believe I am in magazines with my friends. I have really grown in my designs too. I think you have too. Your latest work is fresh and vibrant and very feminine. Lisa, my new friend. I loved working with the two pieces from you so far. I'll be back I'm sure. Thanks Dee.

  5. CONGRATULATIONS! It's such a beautiful edition.
