Finally, Mary Jane Dodd!

Mary Jane Dodd, Designer of the Month


Yesterday, Christmas morning, we were opening presents.  My 25 y/o son, David, says, "Mom, look under the sofa."  I looked at him quizzically ... because it required me to get on my hands and knees ... I reached under the sofa and what to my wondering eyes should appear, but the December Bead Trends magazine with Mary Jane Dodd!  I was so excited because I've been having trouble finding this issue.  I said, "David, did you buy this?"  He said, "Yes, it's got Mary Jane Dodd in it!"  He was so cute.  I wish Mary Jane had heard him.

I am blown away by Mary Jane's work ... so rich with textures, asymmetrical design, gorgeous stones ... I'm going to look at Bead Trends again, as soon as I can wrangle it from my husband's hands!  Congratulations, Mary Jane!

thank you, barbara... i am so touched by this! and how really kind and thoughtful of david to do that for you... of course, a number of the designs would not have been what they were without your beautiful beads in them - so thank you for that as well!

How thoughtful, he certainly knows his Mama! I have not been able to find the issue anywhere, I think it is sooooo good they have been unable to keep it stocked!

Sounds like Mary Jane and Bead Trends are household words in the Lewis home! LOL Such a cute story.
Hope you are enjoying the holidays.

I know! Isn't it a great issue? I love that Mary Jane is in there. Her things are so delicious and different than the norm. I would like to see more of her work.
Merry Christmas to you and yours!
Enjoy the day!
