I think a lot of you who make and design jewelry already know about Jewelry Making Daily. If you haven’t heard about it, let me introduce you!
Jewelry Making Daily is an email that goes out to more than 300K subscribers. Tammy Jones is the editor of it and she is not only a wonderful writer but just an incredible human being. I’ve had the sincere pleasure of meeting her as we are out and about teaching and vending at our various jewelry-focused shows, like the Tucson To Bead True Blue Show and also Bead Fest Philadelphia. What makes Tammy such a great editor is that she is writing about her passion and what she knows. She’s also one of those kinds of people who’re lifelong learners, so she’s constantly educating herself and her readers on the latest and greatest in all things jewelry.
It’s always a treat when I open up my daily email from them and see my name or my work mentioned. Today’s email is about Stash Busters and being inspired to use what you already own in your studio. My book, Making Metal Jewelry: How to Stamp, Form, Forge and Fold Metal Jewelry Designs, is listed as one of her favorite books. I’m thrilled to be on Tammy’s radar today along with Susan’s Resin Alchemy book, which was on the Amazon Top 10 list of craft books for 2015 and Barbara Lewis’ Torch Fired Enameled Jewelry. For a good article on enameling, check out what Tammy wrote when she took Susan’s liquid enamels class at Bead Fest.
Take a peek at Tammy’s article today and consider subscribing to Jewelry Making Daily through Interweave if you haven’t already. I’ll be honest and tell you I don’t have the time to read every single article, but I can say that I’ve picked up some great tips and tricks and new product info over the years from it.
Here’s wishing you a very Artful start to your week.
