Calling All Kings and Queens

Jun 10, 2013

Only one more week until submissions for our Winter issue are due and I am so anxious to see what our talented contributors have come up with! The four themed categories are Retro, Baby; Days of Kings and Queens; Sparkle, Dazzle, Shine; and Chain Meets Fiber.

When we cooked up these themes several weeks ago, by far my favorite was Retro, Baby (since I am, like, totally an 80s girl!). But next week I'll be most curious to see the submissions for the Days of Kings and Queens category. We'll be looking for pieces with a commanding presence, yet wearable in nature--a modern homage to the lavish jewels that adorned history's royal women.

Dolce & Gabbana


Snow White and the Huntsman, Universal Studios


The Tudors, Showtime


Marie Antoinette, Columbia Pictures


Have an idea for a regal piece of jewelry? It's not too late! Just make sure your piece arrives in our Loveland offices by June 17th (full details can be found on our web site here).

And be sure to pick up a copy of the Winter issue this December!

Happy beading!

Debbie, I created a lovely necklace and earring set last year for my kids' school's fundraiser. Can I send in a photo for maybe a "reader's contributions" page?

This is definitely the category reveal I'll be looking for.

Renaissance remix, here we come!

AJB, Unfortunately we no longer have a reader gallery page specifically for Jewelry Stringing. I would encourage you to upload it to the Reader Photo Gallery on the Beading Daily page, though!
