A big surprise by Harper's Bazaar

Firstly, I'd like to apologize my readers for been away from this space since last year. My holiday season was very strange..for good and for bad...I wasn't feeling very creative, and although I had so many things to say about 2010 I felt like the moment wasn't right.
I have been occupied organizing my upcoming trips to trade shows, workshops, demos and book signings for my book and a schedule with my upcoming events will be posted soon.

Now, let's begin the new year with big news.
My book, "Modern Expressions- creating fabulous and fashionable jewelry..." released by North Light Books is featured in the "Hot List " of the February issue of Harper's Bazaar.
It's an honor to have my first solo book mentioned by a magazine of such importance in the fashion industry.
Thank you HB and I hope I can still wow you with my creations.

Thanks to Sarah Reynolds who's is the marketing manager with F+W  Media and has been a great partner on turning my book onto a hit.

Here are the images scanned from the issue I bought last week when I was down in Houston, TX.



  Who would know that the guy who loves the fashion magazines and is constantly sharing his favorites covers here, would be reading about his work in the pages of one of those magazines...
