Christine Smith Jewelry necklace on the cover of Beadstyle Magazine May 2015
Just posting my necklace which is on the cover of Bead style Magazine for the May 2015 issue. It was such a thrill to see my work on the Cover page. The magazine contacted me several months ago with the good news. They found my necklace in my Etsy shop.
The necklace was inspired by a painting called Passion that was created by a wonderful Canadian contemporary artist, Melissa McKinnon, There is a 3 page spread about the necklace on Pages 57-59. This was a very exciting time. The artist sold the Passion painting to another Canadian designer, Monika Siebert. She had commissioned the Passion painting for her home in Calgary. In the end, Monika Siebert bought the hand-knotted amethyst and jade necklace from me.
There are several times when I visit Art Shows and museum for my design inspiration and will make a necklace that resembles a great piece of art work.
