I was honored, this week, to be interviewed by the awesome Jean Yates. Jean won a pair of my earrings in a giveaway hosted by Earrings Everyday. Having connected through this giveaway, Jean then asked if she could interview me on her blog.
Heart earrings that Jean won.
Jean is a well known author, bead magazine columnist, freelance reviewer, frequently published jewelry designer and illustrator. Her book, Links, was already a part of my beading library.
Links, by Jean Yates
Jean has been very positive and encouraging to me. She asked good, thought provoking questions in the interview and posted lots of pictures of my recent jewelry designs. She also posted a school photo of me (I was a teacher, remember) from about 5 years ago. My hair is about 8 inches longer now and a bit grayer, but it still looks like me. ;)
I hope you’ll go check out the interview. I feel really honored to have this interview included with the interviews she has done with so many of the outstanding designers in this field. Here’s the link: Snap out of it Jean! There’s beading to be done!
And, by the way…. I just added these earrings to my Etsy shop. I titled them Spring Fever! I wonder why??? Are you itching for spring too?
Spring Fever earrings
I am always delighted to read your comments! Hope to hear from you.
Spring has finally arrived in the Pacific Northwest and since I love flowers almost as much as I love beads, I’m one happy person! Spring fever spilled over into my jewelry design this week too, so I decided to name this bracelet Spring Fever.
Spring Fever includes glass, wood and ceramic beads. The double strand of copper chain finishes with a flirty, little flower dangle.
Look What I Won!
I entered a giveaway, this week, that Beads and Botanicals hosted on Facebook and I was the winner! How cool is that? I love this new bead. I can hardly wait to see what kind of necklace it inspires! They have a beautiful new website that makes me want every single thing on it! Click on The Lampwork Bead to check it out.

BTW- and this time it means By The Way & Not Bead Table Wednesday
I want to thank everyone who posted words of comfort and empathy on my blog and Facebook page after a dog ran out in front of my car and was killed on Sunday. I felt the hugs and care that everyone sent my way. Thank you for being so wonderful and for lifting me up. ♥✿♥✿♥
