New Book Necklaces and a Contest‏

   Winner has been chosen for the book necklace,,,
Congratulations Jessica in the UK :-)

 Recently a friend sent me the May 2013 American Miniaturist that I had forgotten all about. It is packed full of artists and there wearable miniature art. I had donated a book necklace for a prize in that issue. I have not seen that issue yet so I will have to keep an eye out for it.. Below is a scan of my article,

 I thought I would go ahead and have my own giveaway for the new year. Here it is below..
The leather is very soft eel skin. All you have to do to win is leave a comment below or email me at The journal does open. It is blank inside so you can write something in it if you wanted to.

 Some of my other books available below.
You can see more of them here:




  1. Dear Erika, please enter me in your giveaway! I LOVE your books!!! (I know I have won before... but I hope it will not disqualify me for this one!) Congratulations on your article in the magazine! I don't subscribe to any miniature magazines.... but I probably should!
