Coming soon in the Winter issue of Belle Armoire Jewelry


Spilling the beans a few days early: a new, original pattern by me will appear in the Winter issue of Belle Armoire Jewelry magazine! It will be on sale beginning December 1st. But, I'm so excited I couldn't wait anymore to tell you all!

There is a bracelet to match the necklace and earrings that is modeled in the magazine. I put a chain on the necklace for the magazine article. The ones pictured here have ribbon attached to wire connectors for a different look, using the same pattern.

The tatting pattern with in-progress photos and a diagram will be in the magazine, I realize that some of my blog readers are not familiar with Belle Armoire Jewelry, but it is a popular jewelry craft magazine here in the USA, and I'm hoping the article will get more people interested in tatting.

Congrats, that was the first magazine I had a pattern in as well! It's a lovely pattern set!

Carol said...

How lovely!! Will it ever be available in your Etsy store? I live in Canada, hopefully I'll find the magazine up here. You are a talented designer!

Phyllis said...

What wonderful news. Congrats!

Marilee Rockley said...

Thank you so much! It's always exciting to see one's own work in print!

As a professional courtesy to Belle Armoire Jewelry, I won't be putting the pattern into my Etsy shop until after that issue of the magazine isn't current anymore.

The Barnes and Noble store, as well as Michael's and other major craft supply stores should have the magazine on their shelves starting December 1 or shortly after. The magazine can also be ordered online. At the link posted it also shows the table of contents which can be enlarged enough to read. Looks like a lot of interesting articles in that one!

My first introduction to Yarnplayer was in a bead and button magazine (which I still have) We love you Marilee and all your work too. This jewelry looks amazing. Good photography too.

Congratulations, both you and tatting deserve it!!

Kathy Niklewicz said...

Congratulations! I'm so glad you have a strong relationship (since 2008!) with this magazine, which recognizes your skills as a tatting expert and designer!

They are one of the few modern magazines that acknowledges and publicizes tatting!

I love this beautiful heart and will be looking for the magazine soon!

Marilee Rockley said...

Thanks, everyone!
Kathy, you're right, the Belle Armoire and Belle Armoire Jewelry magazines genuinely support creativity and are willing to think outside of the mainstream "box".

So beautiful! Congratulations!

Love it and make a grand stand on it's own heart. Darn can't get the magazine here in the UK.
How looong do we have to wait till you can share?
Whatever.. it is far too long...

Marilee Rockley said...

Thanks! The magazine can be ordered from the link, but I don't know what the shipping would cost to the UK. The Belle Armoire Jewelry publication is a bit pricey compared to other craft magazines but is very high quality, nice thick paper and gorgeous photos. Definitely a classy showcase for tatting to be included with the other handmade jewelry pieces.

These are very beautiful! I can't wait to see the pattern in your Etsy store (the magazine cost plus shipping is way too much to be worth it for me :( )

Marilee Rockley said...

Thanks, I'll get the pattern ready for Etsy in a few weeks. I'll be able to put in the complete bracelet and earring directions in my version since I won't have to worry about fitting the patterns into a limited space.
