How to get your work featured on Beading Arts


It's time to keep your first New Year's resolution...to promote your work!

Have you been wondering how the people who get featured here do it?  Well, most of them are just like you...they don't have a publicist or an agent, they don't have a contract with Macy's or Bergdorf Goodman (not yet, anyway!), and many of them are shy!

If you'd like to share a piece you've made, all you have to do is shoot me an email to cyndi @ mazeltovjewelry . com (remove the spaces). Please put beading arts image to share in the subject line. We love to read about things like what inspired you to make the piece and any challenges that you faced, so tell us a bit about yourself and the image that you're sending. I'll gladly share your website and/or blog link along with your image and description.

If you'd like to consider sharing a more in-depth artist profile with us, just put beading arts artist profile in the subject line. I'll check out your site (just to make sure you're a real person!) and ask you to send me an artist statement that covers what materials and techniques you like best along with what inspires you, and 3 or 4 images you'd like to feature.

Do you have a favorite technique that you'd like to share in a tutorial?  You know we'd love to see that...as beaders and jewelry-makers, we are always looking for new ideas.  If that's the case, use beading arts tutorial in the subject line and tell me briefly what you're thinking about sharing with us.

I'm always looking for new artists to promote and profile as well as established favorites! So please don't be shy...send me that query!

Here is another hint for those reading this: all I did was comment on a book Cyndi reviewed. The book content was something I enjoy doing, and she asked if I'd be interested in sharing some of my work. I wrote to her with a little background on what I like to do, and the majority of it became the profile article.

Thank you again, Cyndi!!!

Here again...how kind of you to put this offer out there! We all benefit even if it's just reading about the new interesting people you find!!!!

Robbie said...

I just did a 'bleep' on my blog about your offer. Thanks again!
