A Spoonful of Glamour

Nothing provides a pick me up quite like jewelry gazing. I have been slaving away on Jewelry Affaire, which will come out Oct 1. One of the people I'm most excited to feature is Sue Chesley ( She makes gorgeous bracelets out of rhinestones and beads and silverware remnants. Here's a piece she kindly made for me that literally makes me want to whistle as I work : )

Big news: Jewelry Affaire will be going quarterly, so if you make jewelry, please please start sending in bunches of baubles as we will now have to fill two more issues. And I thought I was busy before! This does mean more gorgeous eye candy for everyone and more opportunities to be published, so please check out our submission guidelines, or email me at

Happy Jewelry making!


  1. Wow, I love this piece! What a great way to repurpose! I'm going to contact my sis about Jewelry Affaire...she creates beautiful jewelry.

  2. LoVe the title Beth, and the part about whistling at work!!!
    Sue's piece is charming as is her packaging,
    looking forward to all the inspiration !
