Around Christmas, they ingeniously came up with the idea to do a catalogue, "Artisan of the World" which features the beautiful, artistic talent of many of our Etsy members. The Catalogue, which they expect to distribute 80,000 copies worldwide to top stores and designers. When they emailed me to see if I was interested, my first response to them was, did they think my jewelry to be good enough for such a Catalogue! Not only did they say yes, but also helped me with some of my photos, which led me to learn Photoshop, and revamp my whole shop; re- shooting most of my jewelry. I am proud to say that my ad in the Catalogue came out beautifully, as did all of the other artist's involved.
As Ev often reads my blogs and loves my style of writing, she asked me to write the Introduction to the Catalogue and their Bio as well. I wish them much success with the Catalogue, as they put a lot of time and work into it. Attached is my ad from the "Artisan of the World", and am patiently awaiting my copy's in the mail - of course, one will be off to India to my friends there. As for my friends here the ad is just a sampling of my jewelry, and I invite all to stop by my shop; MagdaleneJewels.etsy.com. Again, most of the thanks go to my friends at "artisanimpact!"
