Hey, I can't believe I'm saying this: I'm in a book! Well, my work is. Remember this post from last year? Well the book editor, Sandra Salamony, used all the items I sent in her new book, 1,000 Jewelry Inspirations!

It's been extremely exciting to go to Barnes and Noble or Borders and see the book casually sitting on the shelf like it is no big deal that I'M IN THERE! *squee!*

And it's not just about me, a lot of my Etsy friends are featured, including a great selection by the amazing and unique artist, Tamara, of Block Party Press. Congratulations to everyone who made the cut!
