|"Torch-Fired Enamel Jewelry: a Workshop in Painting with Fire"|
While I try to find my camera so I can post the photos of yesterday's scene at the Tucson Bead Show, I thought I'd share with you the cover of my book. I know the fonts will undergo some change, but the rest of the cover will remain the same.
It was a challenge for the designers to impart a feeling of fire without actually having a flame in the photo. My daughter says it's like the glow of a fireplace. When I opened my email and saw it for the first time, I had a visceral reaction ... I felt flushed, had goosebumps, a dry mouth, and a lump in my throat. Sounds like stage fright doesn't it!
The first week of August is the release date, which will conclude an 18-month process unlike anything I've ever experienced before! ... but in a good way. :- )
