Bead Chat Magazine

I recently had the opportunity to work with the Artisan Whimsy team who publishes the Bead Chat Magazine. My friend and fellow BBA member, Cynthia of Antiquity Travelers saw my post about my new wooden buttons and thought they be perfect for their 5x5 test group. The group was working with leather this month and thought the wooden buttons would be a great complement.

I must say, I am totally blown away by the Bead Chat Magazine! 100 pages of colorful, content rich-articles. This magazine should be in print it's so pretty!

And I was blown away at what the artists made with my buttons. I love all the different techniques each artist used to incorporate the buttons into their work.

And I cannot say enough nice things about the editors at the magazine. I was thrilled to be asked to contribute my wooden buttons and I was even more thrilled when I saw the article and the wonderful full-page feature they gave me as well!
 
Thank you to both Cynthia (lead editor) and Melinda (founder & chief) for allowing me to participate in the 5x5 test group and I look forward to contributing again!

  5. That is an honor! I think the most fun of all is to see how other people use our creations with their own style. How one button can look so different when used with different items or mediums.
