I've been busier than ever trying to get the Fall line out. I do have more to add but I'm really happy about what's on the site now and I'm also in total love with these Jewel Necklaces. They are giant 1 1/2 diameter or so "jewels" on a long sterling silver chain. My favorite is the aqua necklace. They are faceted glass jewels and come in 5 different shapes and colors!

I am so excited to finally today, after over a year of wanting to spill the beads (I mean beans), announce the release of "Dazzling Beaded Jewelry (DIY): 50 great projects"by Lark Publishing. I have a project that was on the DIY show in this book. When I get ahold of a copy I can give more details as to which project they picked to feature. You can get a copy of it at any bookstore or online at Amazon.com . Yay, I'm published! See more at Bonnin Designs

So far we've had a blast at the Barclay Theatre. Jewelry has been selling really well. I've made lots of new pieces especially for this show (lots of red and black jewelry) as well as many items from the website. My daughter has been an invaluable presence as she's been my assistant and is quite the sales girl. We've been able to see the shows and so far, Juana Amaya's company was incredible. They're all really nice people too! I've seen lots of old friends; many I haven't seen in years and have met some new friends as well. So it's been a memorable event so far, I'm always so full of excitement and anticipation when I get there and am looking forward to the rest of this week and weekend! If you're seeing a show, say "hi".

I was just asked to be the jewelry vendor at the Flamenco Shop for the New World Flamenco Festival in Irvine. This will be for 8 shows and I will be selling my flamenco jewelry as well as my other jewelry. If you're there, stop by and say hi. I've always wanted to sell jewelry at a flamenco show, but I was always dancing at the ones I went to. Not this time. These are the quintessential Flamenco performers. I can't wait.
