My article in "Belle Armoire Jewelry"!

Another "too good to be true" moment!

A whole article, by me, (4 pages!) in Belle Armoire Jewelry Winter 2009!

To top it off, my article appears first, right after the table of contents! The photos were taken by their own professional photographer, and are absolutely glorious!

A dream come true! I encourage you to check out the submission guidelines for this and other magazines, and submit your own original designs - the next article could be by you!

I wish they had the magazine in Korea...I would love to see it in person!

Congratulations Marilee!! You certainly deserve the recognition. Your tatted jewelry is so unique, especially the necklaces.

Well done Marilee, we are all cheering for you!

Thank you all so very much! It may seem silly to get so excited about having an article in a magazine, but to me it represents public recognition of being an artist. It's also public recognition of tatting as an art form.

This is wonderful. You do deserve this like everyone says. I am so proud of you. Must get to BAM and see if they have the magazine yet.

Thanks, Tattycat - they might have the Autumn issue out until Dec.1.
I think Totusmel has some of her work in the Autumn one - so the Belle Armoire Jewelry staff have been very supportive in including tatted jewelry along with their other types of jewelry.

You are welcome Yarnplayer. Thanks for the info about Totusmel in the August issue. I will look for that one. This gives all of us hope for the future of tatting!

yarnplayer said...

Thank you vey much, Gunhild. Happy tatting to you, too!

Tattycat, for "Belle Armoire Jewelry" (the thick magazine!) Totusmel is in the Autumn (fall) issue. She is also in the Nov/Dec issue of "Belle Armoire" (the thinner magazine), and in fact the word "tatted" appears right on the cover!!! I picked up each of these magazines at the book store last night - tatting is totally hot fashion!
