Published... again!

Last week was March break and we had a crazy week - I took off on Wednesday for a nice trip to Toronto with William (more on it later this week) and on Friday we went again for a beauty tour-de-force :) I don't have tons of pictures - but I will share in a day or two, along with the stories.

On Friday we came back home to a neat surprise: my Step by Step wire Jewelry magazine was on the table. And in it? My 2nd design - this time the original 'Autumn in Amber'. I shared the picture with my mom and she quickly corrected me: the amber is over 48 years old (which makes it older than I am!). I mistakenly thought it was bought during her visit to Moscow in 1980 (for the Olympics) - it was brought from Moscow indeed, but by her good friend, who was a violoncellist in the Symphony Orchestra. I grew up with stories about Lenutza (short for Elena) I just didn't realize it was a gift from her.

However - the amber is 48+ years old and it's still gorgeous and you can find it on page 13 of the April-May edition:

Step by Step Wire Magazine April-May, 2013 :: All Pretty Things

Until I figure out if I can publish a picture of the actual magazine page - this is the necklace we are talking about:
