Stringing Magazine plus a GIVEAWAY

Jewelry Making Candie Cooper featured in Fall Stringing MagazineIt’s an honor to be featured on and in the Fall issue of Stringing Magazine!It’s been many years since I submitted designs to Stringing and I was so touched to have four designs in this issue (including the one on the cover!).  Big humble THANK YOU, Interweave/F&W Media.Stringing magazine tassel necklace how to from Candie CooperThis is a slightly different version that I’m wearing versus the one on the cover which is one of the reasons I love this design so much—You can adapt it however you like.

Speaking of design, this is definitely one from my heart.  You guys know my love for fringe…and leather…and a touch of sparkle.  I was diddling (is that really a word?) around one morning, working on classes for Jesse James Beads for Bead Fest April and I thought, I’m making myself a necklace. There is always a small (ok, really huge) collection of Jesse James Beads laying around and I have a few strands that I hoard because I LOVE them.  These teal and brown Inspiration strands were part of that hoard.  The wood beads were some I found in Tucson and Sarah from Jesse James Beads really loved them too, so they were added to the JJB site.  For me, designing jewelry is all about mixing and matching surfaces with color. This piece went together really fast.  I was in the flow for sure and that’s how I knew it was a good one (if I do say so myself…and I am)!Jewelry Stringing Magazine Candie Cooper's cover necklaceCandie Cooper featured artist in Stringing Fall issueRemember those beading videos I did with Interweave?  There is also a little feature article about those in this issue.  PLUS!  A bonus project from the Leather Cuffs video.Jewelry Making Candie Cooper and projects in Stringing Fall 15 magazineMost of the projects in this issue feature beads from so guess what!?!Cherries and Chocolate Giveaway kit from Candie Cooper, and Stringing Magazine!You can win a kit of one of my projects in Stringing thanks to!  PLUS!  Stringing magazine is throwing in a copy of this issue!cherries and chocolate kitHere’s a close up of what you’ll win.  It’s the Cherries and Chocolate kit featuring one of’s soutache necklace!  Enter the rafflecopter below for a chance to win!
