I guess I have held it just about as long as I possibly can. It wasn't intentional. I learned about my jewelry submission being published in the Spring issue of Belle Armoire Jewelry last October. Then, about three weeks ago, I actually saw the article on Stampington's website; as they share a few of the pieces that will be featured in their future publications. The very next weekend I again saw the article there, but this time it also revealed the cover of the magazine. I couldn't believe it~my Vintage Rose Drop Necklace was on the cover! It's due out March 1st, so you must go see all the beautiful jewelry pieces, and instructions, shared by so many wonderful artists in this magazine. Plus, several of my blog friends, Diana Frey, Deryn Mentock and Stephani Gorman will also be featured in this issue, along with their unique styles of jewelry.
Stampington really has the most beautiful magazines in the industry, and so many different published titles. I really have lost count. Their magazines range from Altered Couture to Art Dolls to Life Images, Somerset Life, Art Journaling, Artful Blogging, Somerset Digital Studio, apron~ology, Haute Handbags, Stuffed; and one of their newest publications, Marie Antoinette (due out April 1st *wink*).
The Editor in Chief & Director of Publishing at Stampington & Company, Jenny Doh, is one of the lovely ladies I had the pleasure of meeting last year at the International Quilt Festival. Stampington & Company had a beautifully decorated booth showcasing their newest magazines, Where Women Create and Art Quilting.
I absolutely love all of their work! I guess the best way I can describe how I feel when I open one of their gorgeous magazines, is that it gives me the feeling I can do just about anything. The instructions and stories shared by the artists inside are not only inspirational, but the quality of the magazine and its articles, along with outstanding photography, is superior to any other in their genre.
Needless to say~I am impressed; and oh, so humbled.
