Just a little bit of news to share on my blog today. As you may know, I’ve had the sincere pleasure of teaching at the Cloth, Paper, Scissors CREATE art retreat in Southern California. In fact, I will be returning next year with some all new classes that I’m really excited about. I’ve also been working with Jenn Mason, the fabulous editor of Cloth, Paper, Scissors on and off for the past couple of years on some feature articles.
Starting with the January 2013 issue, I will have a brand new column with them called The Mixed Media Metalsmith. The column will work in tandem with my new book Making Metal Jewelry, due out this December with North Light Books, in that it will focus on beginning techniques to make your own metal jewelry. I’m really over-the-moon happy about it about both the book and the column.
But wait, that’s not all. I will be doing a DVD with Cloth, Paper, Scissors as well(!!!). While I can’t yet announce the subject, it can tell you I fly to Colorado early November to do the taping and the DVD should be released next year sometime. Whew, I’m feeling a little lightheaded.
I’m also thrilled because I will still be writing my business advice columns for Belle Armoire Jewelry Magazine. I truly love love love all the Stampington publications and have ever since I first learned of mixed-media many years ago. So inspirational, always! I also plan to continue writing business advice over at CreateMixedMedia.com, even though I’ve had to take a little break because of my schedule.
I know there are lots of you who love these publications as much as I do, so I wanted to let you know about my exciting news.
Here’s wishing you a truly Artful day!
