Today we send the 2013 issue of 101 Bracelets, Necklaces, and Earrings
off to our printer (2012 issue pictured at right). Yippee! We've been working on this issue for months
and months. Why? Because it's chock-full of awesome, all-new projects that had
to be hand selected, photographed, and edited.
True to its name, we
packed one-hundred-and-one pieces of jewelry into this supersized issue,
which is arranged in color categories. All of the pieces are fairly
simple. After all, that was the vision behind this magazine in the first
place: to offer our readers tons of jewelry ideas that are fashionable, yet
fast-to-make. In fact, most
of the one-hundred-and-one stylish projects featured in the issue can
be made in only an hour or two. That means you can get a new dress in
the morning, make a bracelet from 101 BNE to match it in the afternoon, and wear your ensemble the same evening!
so many pieces of jewelry between its covers, this magazine is like a
of creative possibilities. I’ve already tagged a few must-make items.
One is from the pages I've shared with you below--the Jaded Earrings by
Allison Hoffman in the Pistachio Greens section (top left). They
honestly will take no time to make—maybe forty-five minutes, tops—and
I have a feeling you'll find many favorites, too!
101 Bracelets, Necklaces, and Earrings will be available on newsstands July 16. I hope you have as much fun reading it as we did creating it!
