My "Big Heart Pin," a workshop that I just started teaching last year, is featured on the cover of the March 2009 issue of AJM. It came as a complete surprise and was a huge thrill when I first saw it. Just knowing that the editors had selected my heart-pin project for their publication was such an honor, it never occurred to me that it would land on the cover.
When I saw it, my mouth fell open!
If you'd like to learn how to make a beautiful heart-shaped pin using 12ga sterling silver wire and a chasing hammer (I also use the little Fretz embossing hammer), be sure to pick up a copy of the March issue, on newsstands now. And if you like my article, be sure to write to the editors and tell them! They love hearing from readers.

I'm also teaching this workshop at Monica's Quilt & Bead Creations in Palm Desert, California, on February 10, just in time for Valentine's Day. If you live in the Southern California area, be sure to sign up for this class; make a pin for your mom, a friend, or yourself!
