Belle Armoire Jewelry

"Bohemian Knotted Jewelry"

I am so excited and thankful to have my work featured in Belle Armoire Jewelry. It's a real honor to be among the pages of this esteemed magazine! Belle Armoire is known for high quality, high-end art jewelry. Amazingly talented, distinguished jewelry artists have graced the pages of this publication. Some of them are fellow jewelry friends I have had the pleasure of meeting. Even though I am a published author of a successful jewelry-making book, I never thought I would see my work in Belle Armoire. I like to stay humble. It keeps me grounded :) Seriously, I just didn't consider what I do to be a "fit" for the magazine...I'm still not sure. I can imagine other jewelry designers may feel the same way as well. Don't be afraid to submit your creations, you may be surprised!
African-Inspired Cuff and Del Sol Bracelet

I thank editor, Cynthia Levens, from the bottom of my heart for extending out an invitation to me to submit my jewelry and giving me this opportunity. My article in the Winter issue entitled "Bohemian Knotted Jewelry" looks so beautiful. It's a very proud moment for me. I even had the photographer inquire about buying one of my pieces that appears in the article as well. I'm absolutely flattered. That is the first time a publishing staffer has ever wanted to purchase my work. She must see so, so many incredible pieces through her lens. To want one of my pieces? Well, that feels really great. She did a fantastic job with the photos of my jewelry in the magazine and the rest of the staff did a wonderful job putting it all together!

For all those interested in learning more about my knot work, pick up a copy of the latest issue of Belle Armoire Jewelry. You'll find step-by-step instructions for my Modern Bohemian Necklace, African-Inspired Cuff, Del Sol Bracelet and three pairs of earrings from my Bohemian Knotted Earrings Collection.

My friend and book co-author Lorelei also has a few jewelry pieces in this same issue. I'm so glad we are both a part of it together! Her pieces appear in the Boutique Gallery of Jewelry and they look awesome. Congrats, L!

  2. Oh Erin how exciting! and so well deserved!!! your pieces here are stunning, but then all your work is. I'm not surprised they would ask to buy a piece!

  3. Congrats to you too my friend!!! It is amazing to be part of this publication together. I am so proud of us both!

  4. Congratulations Erin, so wonderfully deserved :-)

  5. Ooh, I hadn't heard of Belle Armoire Jewelry - I don't think it gets delivered to our little corner shop here in the UK. But they must have good taste if they publish your work :-D

    I got your book for my birthday, I really LOVE it. But I saw the price of silk and waxed linen, went EEK and have now got some waxed cotton instead. I wonder if it will be ok?

  6. That necklace looks truly fantastic Erin. And the bracelet too. And of course you should be in Belle Armoire Jewelry! It IS a great magazine. Congratulations!!!!

  7. Contrats Erin! What a way to send off 2012! Happy for you :)
