Cover Girl!!!

No!  Not me!  Well, maybe a future AARP cover girl.  In the meantime, my 'Circle of Love' pendant has been published and made the cover of the October/November 2014 edition of Step by Step Wire. Another of my goals has been achieved.

Once, my submission was accepted, I kept it a secret.  I just don't know the ropes of being published and I thought perhaps something could take a priority over my space in the magazine. Then I received the 'hint' that I 'might' make the cover.  I tried to control my excitement.  It was all I could do to keep from blogging immediately.  But, as a precaution I put some duct tape on my mouth.

I went to the Post Office to check my box.  There was a large envelope with a return address that I didn't recognize.  I thought 'Someone is trying to sell me insurance again!'.  So, I decided to open it immediately, planning on putting the advertising into the paper recycling can.  Gasp!  There was an exciting sound that escaped my mouth. There in my hands was my personal copy of Step By Step Wire magazine with my pendant saying 'smile!"

And, I am sharing this publication with the best of the best!  The creme de la creme of wire jewelry talent!  In the picture above, on the upper right corner, is a design by Cindy Wimmer, Step By Step Wire 2014 Featured Artist and author of The Missing Link, a very awesome book that every wire artisan should have in their library. As of today it's on sale for $13.77 - HURRY!  This is a deal!

What's next for me?  

Well, first, I'm going to go make some of the other tutorials in this publication! There are so many talented artisans and tutorials to choose:  Abbi Berta, Elizabeth Girod, Kylie Jones, Becky Nunn, Bobbi Maw, Diana Ptaszynski, Daleann Stark, Christine Wilson, Cindy Wimmer, and Lilian Chen.

Now, that I'm more confident with publishing, I'll let you in on another secret.  I have another tutorial that's been accepted and it is scheduled for the February/March 2015 issue of Step By Step Wire.

Thank you for reading along with me.  Have a joy filled and creative day!



  1. You go girl! Just got my issue of the mag. Anxious to look at your piece. TFS!

    1. Oh, Michelle! All I can say is 'Blush!'. I do think this copy of the magazine has some very interesting projects. I hope you enjoy everything. BTW I noticed that some of the pictures that I submitted have been eliminated. Most likely for space. They aren't really going to cause a problem, but contact me, if you or anyone needs help with my project. I'll do my best to help. Thank you for your kind words.


Thank you for your kind words. I'll answer any of your questions very soon. Linda
