2018 - Once again, it's been an amazing year!! My "Once upon a dragon....." won 2nd place in Bead and Button's wire competition and was in the October issue of Bead and Button magazine.
a fine silver set i made took gold in sets in the fire mountain metal competition and will be used in their advertising on the back of a magazine.
Can't wait to see what the rest of the year brings......
2019 - I'm not going to lie....this year was truly a blur.
I was offered and accepted a tutorial book deal by Kalmbach Publishers! This would prove to be one of my craziest years to date. Between doing 30+ trade shows, making new pieces, custom work and writing a book......I'm exhausted just remembering it. But I wouldn't trade a single day of it for anything in the world. Even as hard as it was.....I loved (almost) every minute of it!
2020 -Wireweave KIT CLUB LAUNCHED. I have started a monthly, paid, kit club that includes lots of goodies. Check out the Members Only section to start your paid membership. I have a new dragon this year called "What would a dragon wear?" It's a dragon tie and faux shirt collar two piece design. It's down at Fire Mountain Gems in the finals....It won President's choice!!
My book is supposed to be released this summer July-August...It's called Intricate Wire. You will be able to purchase it on Amazon, Bead and Button, Interweave and local beading stores. Contact me if you can't find a copy. There will be launch parties.
Also this year I'll be doing more teaching and launching a "Dragon Retreat" It'll be a full weekend of learning how to make one of my dragons. All expenses will be included in the price with limited seating....stay tuned.
