In the Designer Spotlight

Hi everyone!

I hope you are enjoying the holidays with family and friends.

December has been even more full than usual this year so my posts have been sparse.  But, the end of the year has brought some great news I'm excited to share.

I am in the Designer Spotlight for one of my favorite bead manufacturers - Halcraft Collection.  You may have seen Halcraft beads at Michaels with their Bead Gallery line.  Or, at Joann's in their Bliss Beads line.  Now, you can find them on their own website.  Their selection of beads continues to expand and get better and better.

Here's the start of the article:

Welcome to December's Designer Spotlight!

I've followed and admired Terry Ricioli's work for years! Not only does Terry create beautiful jewelry, but she also teaches others how to do the same thing by submitting her pieces to magazines for publishing and teaching at her local craft store.

You might have seen her work in "Beadwork" as well as "Stringing" magazines. I'm so pleased to introduce her as December's Spotlight Designer!
Terry started creating craft designs when her daughters were small. She was a stay-at-home mom and needed a creative outlet. She tried creative writing and found the craft magazine niche. Over the years, she's had many designs published in craft magazines and books. She's been on a variety of design teams and has had a love making things since she was little. She likes to try a little of everything! 

And, here's the link for the rest of the spotlight.

A big thank you to Molly Schaller and Denise Yezbak Moore and to everyone at Halcraft!
Happy New Year!
