The winning entries will be published in a gallery in Beadwork magazine and the actual works will be exhibited at Bead Fest Santa Fe (March 12–15, 2009) and Bead Fest Philadelphia (August 20–23, 2009).
Dandelion Wine Beads, take their namesake from Ray Bradbury’s novel.
Bookplates are popping up as Secret Garden Pendants, an interesting mixed media creation after a little shopping in my local scrapbook store.I’d love to see your jewelry or beads that have been inspired by books. Leave a link in the comments for a chance to be featured in an upcoming post.
