Stringing Magazine Spring 2012 Designs by Jamie Hogsett8:34 AM
This post is a bit behind schedule, since the magazine has been out for awhile now! All the same, I'm fortunate to have two designs published in the Spring 2012 issue of Stringing Magazine.
Sweet Tweet is my favorite necklace right now and one I actually wear a lot! It's made with Non-Tarnish Silver Soft Flex Craft Wire and is still as bright and shiny (and tarnish-free, of course!) as it was when I made it months ago. The necklace also features a tiny shell pendant from Lillypilly Designs; a tagua nut open slice, tubes and little ovals from Antelope Beads; and enameled rings and a hook and eye clasp from C-Koop Beads.
Spring Spectrum is part of a feature on color, specifically the colors of Pantone's Spring Fashion Color Report, written by Chloe Chantenever. Colors included in this piece are Bellflower, Cabaret, Tangerine Tango (best color ever!), Solar Power, and Margarita. Soft Flex Beading Wire in Pink Tourmaline is the foundation for this necklace of vintage Czech glass buttons from my personal stash, etched buri seed beads from Lillypilly Designs, seed beads and Swarovski Elements crystal bicones from Beyond Beadery, and gold-filled crimp tubes and clasp from Soft Flex Company.
See instructions and information for both of these pieces in the Spring 2012 issue of Stringing Magazine. Enjoy!
