A Bead in Time Book Updates

Since I have my first book signing tomorrow, I thought I would commemorate this moment by sharing one of the book's project photos with everyone.

Oh, how I wish spring would arrive early... Just in case it isn't going to happen in the next few weeks, I selected the bright yellow dandelion project to show you here.

It had just turned to spring when I was working on projects for the book. In my neighborhood you MIGHT see an occassional dandelion, but most people prefer not to have them.

I am a real pushover for the underdog in any situation and was determined to find a yard full of them to photograph. After driving around town, I discovered that a local school yard was covered in them!

Most projects in the book have the inspiration photo I used to create each piece. So, here is the "ode to the dandelion" project. I had never worked with these brooch forms before and it was lots of fun!

I also wanted to take a moment to thank the following individuals who have been so kind as to post new reviews of the book.

Dave Robertson of Rings&Things in Spokane, Washington. THANK YOU Dave!!! :)

Davinia of Deez News from Australia who was one of the recent giveaway winners. She had some very kind words to share! THANK YOU!

Congratulations on the new book and the book signing. Where is the book signing? I get so nervous when I do a book siging. They end up being so much fun and you will meet lots of great people. Where is your book sold?

Happy day to you
