Butterfly Dreams Necklace has been set free...

First Necklace in Butterfly Dreams Collection

This is the first finished necklace in my new series Butterfly Dreams. Purple is my favorite color so of course I started with a purple one. I am having so much fun making these, I am going to try and post a new one at least once a week. I will share them as I finish them. This necklace has been set free and is looking for a good home. You can check out all of the details at this link.

Book Title and Butterflies Dreams

For those of you who don't know, my biz partner Kira and I have an instructional book coming out in 2013 and we found out what the title will be. Its 98 % sure it will remain the same but I wanted to share with you anyway. It will be called Polymer Clay Art Jewelry, How to Make Polymer Clay Jewelry Projects Using New Techniques. It was a whole new experience for us to be writing a book with a major publisher. I've enjoyed the journey but can't wait to see it in actual print. Check back because I will be having some fun giveaways when I have some copies in hand.

I also wanted to share with you one of the latest series I have been working on, its called Butterfly Dreams and will be a series of necklaces featuring butterflies, which are one of my favorite things. I always make sure to plant lots of butterfly friendly plants to attract a wide variety of butterflies to my garden. In return they give me the best photos and inspiration. As you can see from the photo, they are still in the works  and have just been fired. Soon they will blossom into a beautiful necklace that I will be ready to set free. I will post the finished necklaces as I get them photographed and ready to go but here is a sneak peak...
