Read All About It!

I'm feeling a little (over? nah!) exposed - Lush Lampwork beads or buttons are cropping up in so many magazines at the moment!

The New Year kicked off with a competition to win one of three sets of Sunspots Buttons in Cloth magazine - which are actually not in the photos but can be seen on my Shank Buttons page.

Then there's a chance to win one of five sets of my Dusted Heart Trios in Make Jewellery - three hearts with a pearly finish, perfect for Valentine's Day.

With two tutorials and brilliant coverage on the Product Review pages, Lush Lampwork really is all over Making Jewellery magazine, issue 24!

Still to come are a 'Fire and Ice' heart tutorial in Creative Beads & Jewellery - due to hit the shelves on 20th Jan and another buttons giveaway in Beads & Beyond magazine!  

What a great start to 2011!

So how about a little competition for my blog readers?
If you'd like to win a Toggle Bracelet Kit, just send me an email to with the answer to this question ... "on how many pages in Making Jewellery Magazine issue 24, does a Lush Lampwork item appear?"
(if you don't have access to the magazine you can still have a guess, the answer is somewhere between 1 and 12).
I'll select the winner from correct answers received by 9th Feb - issue 25 is due out on the 10th.  The winner can choose their prize from the Toggle Bracelet Kits available on my website at that time.


  1. Well done Julie you have been a busy bee, hope 2011 is a good year for lushlampwork, oh is the answer 2 just a guess.

  2. Just sent in my answer :)
    I'm being picky over it.

    The mag was great I just posted my photos of my poor poor attempt at the toggle bead.

  3. Hi Julie,
    I've seen your article in the Jewellery magazine... it's fantastic and well deserved coverage... I hope we get to see more... such an inspiration! xx
    p.s Happy New Year! x

  4. They are beautiful toggles. I saw them in the magazine and they just "wowed" me! Keep working hard, can´t wait to see what you come up with next!
