Just how thrilled am I this month I'd like to ask! Thiiiiiiiiiiissss thrilled. Upon receiving the premier edition of MetalClay Artist Magazine, I was floored to see a beautiful full page ad from PMC Connection featuring my Woodland Altar pendant! Then I turned the pages to discover my Amazonite Hollow Ring adorning Whole Lotta Whimsy's 1/4 page ad. They had both asked permission to use the images of course, so I knew the advertisements were in the works - but holey schlamoley! I never expected to be so very honored, surprised and touched to see the final layouts. Thanks so much to Tonya, Ken and Mary Ann for this exceptional opportunity.
And if *that's* not enough, Lora Hart Jewels will now be represented by Mindful Nest Gallery in Burbank, California! The adorable owner, Amanda Vernon, ran Handmade Gallery (where I had a booth) for many, many years. When she was in the process of opening Mindful Nest, she contacted me and now the time is right for both of us. I'll be stocking my case this afternoon! *jumps up and down in glee* For those of you in the vicinity, I cannot praise MN enough. They have some of the most beautiful, charming, amusing and unusual handmade art I've seen in one place. Do come down to do a little holiday scouting. Hanukah starts tomorrow and Christmas will be over before we know it (how did that happen?).
