I have been fortunate to have the following publications feature my glass beads and jewelry designs.   Some talented friends, designers and artists have also used my beads in their work.  Here you will be able to read more about these publications.  For more detail of each publication, double click the book or magazine titles to visit their respective page.

Scans from the following magazines will be uploaded soon.
