I am honored to have been asked to write a how-to
article for Belle Armoire Jewelry magazine. If you have not read this magazine before, I highly recommend it.
There is always lots of technique based information in it, and wonderful
My article is a basic looping (knotless netting) technique, and includes a project with step by step photos and tips. The project uses my "faux stone" clay hearts, found in my MakeABasket etsy shop.
No news stand near you? No problem! They offer an online preview and discount, $2 off, plus free shipping. I
have used this service before, and it's great! I love this! My town does not have a book store, where I can buy these, so I have to drive 30 miles to get one, or have a subscription. The magazine is sent the same
time it comes out on news stands, but it is wrapped up (so your neighbor or carrier does not get sucked into reading it) and comes quickly.
I am a fiber artist, wife, and mother. My Catching the Moon series of weavings is largely about my life and the pursuit of dreams. See my Catching the Moon series on my website. I generally use basketry techniques, but love to mix media and techniques. I also use this blog to highlight my online guild, The Pine Needle Group (www.PineNeedleGroup.com )Thanks for reading my blog!
