Sneak Peek into Summer Jewelry Stringing!

Yesterday we put the finishing touches on the Summer 2013 issue of Jewelry Stringing magazine and sent the files off to the printer. Yay! I think you all are going to like this issue. But don't just take it from me. Enjoy the exclusive preview below and come to your own conclusion!

Modern Cowgirl

This necklace, Saddles and Sage by Toni McCarthy, is part of the issue's Modern Cowgirl project collection. The pieces in this collection are earthy and feminine, with just a pinch of Southwest sass. The jewelry designs feature down-to-earth materials, such as chunky natural gemstones, leather cord, and metallic accents. Yee hah!

Flower Market

With their lively pastel palettes, nature-inspired embellishments, and playful fiber accents, the necklaces in the Flower Market collection remind us of wildflower bouquets, and each one presents a lesson in designing summery jewelry. The lovely necklace here is Vintage Garden by Rejetta Sellers.

Summer in the City

Sara Oehler's Big City Lights necklace is part of our Summer in the City collection. The designers of the fashion-forward pieces in this collection have expertly combined carefully selected materials in deliberately arranged color palettes to create pieces that are chicly cosmopolitan.

In addition to the project collections I've highlighted above, the Summer 2013 issue also boasts an extended feature on MIXED-MEDIA jewelry that explores using resin, riveting, and colorizing metal to create customized jewelry.

The Summer issue will be available to subscribers in mid-May and on newsstands June 4. I hope you enjoy it!
