I was so delighted last week to find this book review during a happy hour spent catching up with my latest Journal from the Bead Society of Great Britain, of which I’ve been a member for some years.
I was really excited to have sold some of my beads to Jennifer Airs at one of the first bead events I went to, and she contacted me a while later asking me to make an equivalent set in an alternative colourway. She used the beads in a necklace complemented by some gorgeous cylinder-shaped beadwork elements - which was featured in Jean Power’s book.
It was the review of the latest edition of the book that caught my attention in the Journal. Ta-daaaah! I knew that Jennifer’s necklace had been featured in the original edition - but I am beyond thrilled to see that her photograph of it is on the front cover of this one!
