Final Issue of Bead Trends Magazine Contain My Earrings

Mint Leaf Earrings by Bay Moon Design are published in this months Bead Trends
I am sorry to see Bead Trends magazine go the way of so many print publications these days.  Their final issue is July 2013.  This is a special magazine for me.  It was love at first sight.  I have been a subscriber since the first issue hit the stands.  I love the gorgeous photos and jewelry in each issue.   You can only imagine my excitement when I found out this winter that a pair of my earrings would appear in Bread Trends in July.  I was later notified that a necklace of mine would be in the October issue.  Sadly, the necklace will not appear in print.

These chocolate brown and mint ceramic earrings are featured in this months issue on page 56.  The ceramics are shaped like leaves and are earthy looking. They dangle 2 inches below the antique copper kidney earwires and are light and comfortable to wear. I think that they have a rustic appearance to them. The antique copper kidney earwires go great with the colors in the ceramics and give the earrings an edgy look. Simple, lovely, go with anything. The ceramics are made by Marsha Neal Studio.

Bay Moon Design earrings appear on page 56.

These earrings inspired me to create a matching pendant necklace which you see below.  Both pieces of jewelry are rustic.  I think you will agree that Marsha Neal Studio ceramics are eye catching that they don't need a complicated design to stand out.

 I paired Marsha's ceramic with Nina Designs Leather.  If you haven't worked with Nina Designs deer hide leather, I think that you should.  It is so soft and pretty.  Lots of beautiful colors are available.


  1. I just want to cry over Bead Trends, but I sure love the looks of the jewelry you had published! Hats off to Marsha Neal too!

  2. The mint leaf earrings are beautiful! You are so talented!
