Hi Everyone!
I could hear the roar of the UPS truck far up the street. It became louder as it approached, and then, the squeaky brakes bringing the big brown truck to a heavy halt in front of my house. My first thought was, "I haven't ordered anything" Then Mike brought in the dream book of the year.
OHHH MYYY. Yes I am speaking of Suzanne Golden Presents
Interviews with 36 Artists Who Innovate with Beads.
Editor Nathalie Mornu
If you are on the internet at all you have heard the buzz about this amazing inspirational book. You have seen the colorful cover page and I know your heart skipped a beat or two just wanting a better look at what is inside. You will NOT be disappointed. Suzanne did her research and gathered bead art from all over the world. She introduces and interviews each artist with such respect and a bit of glamor. You actually feel as if you know these extraordinary people.
Knowing Suzanne, I would not expect anything less. She is a woman of regard and I am honored to call her friend. I will tell you the story of how we met in another post. Today I want you to do what ever it takes to purchase this book. Published by Lark Jewelry and Beading they again have come up with a format to inspire and engulf us in bead art. There are 186 pages of elegance. Each page of exquisite photography will draw you into the art and stir your creative soul. A true book of  inspiration for any artist in any medium.  A true Master Piece!
Thank you to Lark Books and to Suzanne Golden.
