I believe the word is...squee!

I'm really so excited! I just received my copies of the July 2009 issue of Bead Trends magazine and there I am on page 78 with my Woodland Leaves earrings! (I had to picture the June issue here, July isn't up on their website yet and I'm not trekking back upstairs to scan my issue's cover!). *06/26/09 Just put the current cover in place instead of June's*
Here are the earrings featured, they use a pair of my Pond Leaf Charms and labradorite: Want the earrings? I'll have them up in Etsy soon (or you could email/comment and stake your claim!) Want the charms? They're made to order and listed on my website.

In other (much less exciting to all of you probably) news...
I'm currently sitting on the floor of my living room awaiting delivery of my new couch and chair set. We had our old furniture for 10 years and decided it was time to get "grown up" furniture! To add further to the excitement of the day, I had 4 or 5 inches chopped off my hair today. It was me!

I'm off to Napa Valley bright and early tomorrow morning for a little break. I'm looking forward to the getaway and maybe some new jewelry/pendant inspirations. I promise not to design anything immediately after visiting a wine tasting room though!


  1. Squee is the perfect word! Congrats on your earrings getting published, incoming new furniture & the departure of several inches of hair!!!

  2. Mellisa congratulations!!! I would be on cloud 9 if I were you. I love earrings, my favorite colors. Hope you have a great weekend.

  3. July is out?!!? I haven't got my little white box yet (but I do so love when they are sitting there when I get home!) I will have some pieces in there as well and so I will be doing a little squee-ing of my own soon! Can't wait to examine your pretties up close!
    Enjoy the day!

    P.S. Did you get my little note about adding some things to my hole-less beads? Let me know how you want to proceed! Thanks!

  4. Hey Erin,
