I had a book launch last week! I share some photos and talk about the experience over at the The Book Website »
At least, I’m going to call it a success – plenty of people came, the chairman of the board at the Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design said some incredible things about me and my book, I got to see my favorite people, meet some fans, and make new friends, and I sold and signed nearly every copy of the book we had on hand!
Full update (with photos) to come. For now, if you’re looking for a copy of the book try CBCCD (they had a couple left and you can order more), or My Fair Ladies in Sydney – or, try ordering your copy on Amazon.
I’m tired, but happy. Thank you everyone! Stay tuned for what’s next!
PS: I will be on the radio today! Listen to CBC Mainstreet Cape Breton today, May 8, between 5 and 5:30 AST, or maybe it’ll be posted to the website later? I’m not sure!
I spent some time this weekend making pieces that follow the techniques from my new book, Freeform Wire Art Jewelry. This one was made using a series of beads I pulled for a Color example in the Design portion of the book. A traditional complementary colour scheme of blue and orange makes up this colorway, inspired by the artisan-made lampworked focal bead:
I did pull out a few more and I ended up ditching the larger beads, but it’s essentially the same colorway nonetheless:
The launch date of my book is SO CLOSE! To celebrate, I’m giving away a signed copy smile emoticon Just fill out the form at this link to be entered:

So, I’ve been sitting on some really big news for oh… say, a year. It’s been taking up a lot of my time and it’s been KILLING ME that I couldn’t announce it. But now – I can!
You guys. I wrote a book.
Last fall, FW Media found my tutorials online and came knocking at my door, asking me to write a step-by-step jewelry book. I gathered my thoughts, took a jillion photos, had the wonderful Jayme Burns take beauty shots for me (that’s her gorgeous shot on the cover), and wrote and edited and wrote and edited all year.
And now, you can pre-order it on Amazon!!
I’m so, so, pleased and nervous and excited and terrified to share this with you all. Without you I wouldn’t be here.
Keep an eye out for more news as publishing unfolds.
