Ronnie Lambrou and Jeri Warhaftig Featured in New Bead & Button Special Edition

Congratulations are in order for members Jeri Warhaftig and Ronnie Lambrou.  Their collaborative work, “Santorini Eruption” is a finalist in the International Society of Glass Beadmaker’s and Bead & Button’s joint project, “Convergence.”

Even more exciting, the project, with instructions, will appear in Bead & Button’s new special issue, “Jewelry Designs with Art Glass Beads.”

The necklace, shown below, was designed and made by Ronnie, with lampworked glass bead made by Jeri.



Donna Ryan-Kocun, Cover Girl

My copy of Step-by-Step Wire arrived a few days ahead of our most recent Bead Society meeting and I hadn’t had a chance to peruse it.  So imagine my delight and surprise when it was announced that the cover project was by our own Donna Ryan-Kocun!  We are lucky to have so much talent in our group.  Congratulations, Donna!
