Fall is Here

I've been busier than ever trying to get the Fall line out. I do have more to add but I'm really happy about what's on the site now and I'm also in total love with these Jewel Necklaces. They are giant 1 1/2 diameter or so "jewels" on a long sterling silver chain. My favorite is the aqua necklace. They are faceted glass jewels and come in 5 different shapes and colors!



Bonnin Designs in a New Book

I am so excited to finally today, after over a year of wanting to spill the beads (I mean beans), announce the release of "Dazzling Beaded Jewelry (DIY): 50 great projects"by Lark Publishing. I have a project that was on the DIY show in this book. When I get ahold of a copy I can give more details as to which project they picked to feature. You can get a copy of it at any bookstore or online at Amazon.com . Yay, I'm published!



Bonnin Designs at the Irvine Barclay Theatre

my assistant (my daughter)
I was asked to be the jewelry vendor at the Flamenco Shop for the New World Flamenco Festival in Irvine. This is for 8 shows and I am selling my flamenco jewelry as well as my other jewelry. If you're there, stop by and say hi. I've always wanted to sell jewelry at a flamenco show, but I was always dancing at the ones I went to. Not this time. These are the quintessential Flamenco performers. It's awesome so far. Sales are great and so are all of the shows!

Notebooks at Chebang!

I've been working on these handbound notebooks for the shop. Each one features original, one-of-a-kind artwork and hold 24 blank pages inside.

So far I have made 12. I hope to sell these at Felt Club this weekend.
