I still have jewelry on the brain ... I'm beginning to get responses from the jewelry community on Jewelry Affaire. I realize how lucky I am to be welcomed into this community of artists, and hopefulyl my magazine will be welcomed with open arms as well. This launch is so deeply personal to me, as I hope becomes mroe evident when you read my editor's letter which I think sums everything up nicely. But definitely one of the major perks of working on this magazine is getting to know and work with jewelry artists whose work I adore.
Today I heard from Gaea Cannaday (http://www.gaea.cc/) (http://gaeabeads.blogspot.com/). How lucky I am to have her support this magazine, and to know her at all. Her jewelry is so organic, so different, so fresh, so amazing. Her play with colors is phenomenal. Her Day of the Dead jewelry is a personal favorite. Not only will she be in the premier issue of Jewelry Affaire but shes already shared ideas for the second installment as well. In addition to selling her pieces, Gaea also sells the materials to make these lovelies. Check out her stuff and prepare to be delighted.
