Bead and Button Magazine!

My friend and business customer Meg Mullen owns the company Bead My Love.  Bead My Love sells supplies for bead embroidery and carries polymer cabochons made by me.  This summer Meg asked me to design a scarab cabochon for her.  She was designing a bead embroidery piece.  I will tell you that her work is stunningly gorgeous!  I was honored to do this design for her! She made me proud!  Not only does she do awesome bead design and bead work but she is a really sweet person. 

Scarab Kit
The Scarab Bead Embroidery Design by Meg Mullen

The bead embroidery piece (with my scarab cab)  and the tutorial designed by Meg is in the February 2015 issue of Bead and Button  magazine!  For those of us in the jewelry making business Bead and Button is one of the best publications in the industry. It is exciting for me to see my artwork and name in Bead and Button magazine!  I am also so proud of Meg and that her design is being showcased.

The scarab beetle is an ancient Egyptian symbol for "rebirth".   A perfect project for bringing in the New Year! If you are interested in making this project Bead My Love has the complete Bead and Button Scarab Design Kit on their website.  They also carry seed beads and have the smaller stone cabs that are in the project.  I have the scarab cabochons in my Etsy shop MsPlace.  

Thanks for stopping by and happy beading!

Shopping is So Much Fun

Shopping is so much fun!  I bought some new molds from MasterMolds on Etsy to use for polymer cabochons.  I think they are quite interesting!

I am still having fun with chalks and guilders paste!  So many colors and combinations!
