The cover of Perlen Poesie. Abrege, the diamond and ellipse bracelet that is so graceful. The design came about after my long love affair with the diamond and ellipse shapes. The blending of one ellipse into the next is my favorite part of the bracelet, and what adds just a bit of complexity. The edge join of 3 mm crystals also adds my trademark sparkle with just around a gross of crystal.
I think as has always been the case with this beautiful publication, that the cover images are outstanding. Ever since Freddie took an excellent photo of me at Bead and Button a few years back I was impressed with his photography skills. The photo in question ended up in the Perlen Poesie issue ten with a reference to my being in the next issue.
Although the magazine is in German, the photos and illustrations still make it striking, but now....there will be a free download of the English text. This makes owning a copy of each issue truly worthwhile for the English speaker. I think I'll be subscribing from now on.
Thanks to Andrea and Freddie, husband and wife and owners of Perlen Poesie for including me in their publication!
