27.4.10 My 1st Publication In Print - The Flame Tree Flowers Earrings

About almost a year ago (27.5.09), overwhelmed from the magnificent Brachychiton acerifolius blooming in my surrounding, I decided to immortalize that moment by beading flowers that will not wither.
This is how the Flame Tree Flowers Earrings were born.




Today, I got 2 copies of the Jun/Jul 2010 Bead&Button magazine, issue #97. One of them with a kind note, that something I might be interested in appears on p.48:

and indeed very interesting ;-)

As you can see, I prepared several versions in order to test if my instructions were correct and how I could improve the design.

I can't express how much I appreciate the work done by the B&B team from the very beginning of all this process till the moment I got the earrings back.
When I saw the 1st draft revised by the Editor Julia Gerlach who tested my project, I had one thing in mind. How PROFESSIONAL you are! No words and just a pleasure to work with people like these that know how to present and write so nicely, clearly and concise.
This is my first ever publication and this leaves me with a good feeling. I never managed to publish when I was in Plant Science Research, so this is for me a great opportunity to compensate on that with this article :-)
Additionally, it was great to receive B&B newsletter and see the promotion of my earrings handmade by Julia Gerlach:



Finally, I surely hope you will enjoy beading them and surprise me with your versions of it!

ג'וד, התוצאה יפהפייה ! במודיעין אנחנו מוקפים בברכיכיטונים (אלה עם הפרח הורוד נפוצים ביותר) והם מעוררי השראה ביותר.
תמשיכי ליצור וברכות על הפרסום!
