Check out the latest Jewelry Affaire!

I know I did. I snatched it up as soon as my husband walked in the door with the mail and waved it at me. He was completely unprepared for my reaction.  I LOVE this magazine. I know I say that a lot. But I tend to really really love the thick gorgeous art mags that are out there right now. There is so much inspiration and beauty to be found in these. I really dog ear each copy I get. Jewelry Affaire, if you don't recognize it, is a relatively new magazine to Stampington publications. It's goal is to publish absolutely gorgeous, fabulous jewelry that is simple to make. It's great for beginner's who are just trending toward jewelry from other crafts and want to get great results and try a variety of media.

In this latest Jewelry Affaire  I am thrilled and so so grateful to have an article featuring my stitched wire cuffs. Check out the pic above! They're a simplified version of the Cloud 9 Cuff in my book, Creative Bloom. What I did was take the basic cuff shape and rather then add detail with additional wire work I used fabrics, buttons, and trims to create an embellished look. Trust me though. These girls are super simple.

Some jewelry I make I love but for some reason don't wear all that often. The cuffs I wear all the time. They're super comfy and cushy and you can make it as loose or form fitting as you want. I like mine pretty form fitted so they don't slide around on me. So if you've been thinking cuffs are pretty cute AND you want to try something new- check out this latest issue of Jewelry Affaire! Thanks for stopping by!!!
