Cynthia Rutledge is by far one of my favorite bead artists.  I love her work, and this is one of my favorites of hers, the Monet Garden Necklace: http://cynthiarutledge.net/kits/n-monetgarden/index.htm

OOooh!  This is a gorgeous piece!  I don't know if I could pick just *one* bead artist!  There are so many and all are so talented!  DIane Fitzgerald is one I really like.

I'm going to have to look through Ms. Rutledge's stuff - I like her work too!

Maybe one of you nice ladies can help me.  I once saw a beaded flower bracelet in a bead magazine--the name escapes me at the moment.  Anyway, the bracelet looked 2 thistles joined together at the top of the flowers, with green beads forming a "stem" around the wrist.  Would any of you happen to know the name of the artist who created it?  Or any details about the magazine.  I think I saw it about a year and a half ago. (I'm guessing a little on that.)  
Thanks in advance.

ETA I'm sorry if this isn't the place for this question.  I'm still trying to find my way around the site.  Smiley

Yes, I love her work, too.  Aren't her ginkgo leaf pieces amazing?  Her colors are sooooooo nice!

LOL, I've drooled over her work for years!

Good news...I was able to find what I believe is a link to the bracelet:
http://www.interweavestore.com/Beading-Jewelry/Projects/Thistle-Bracelet.html

The project appeared in the February/March 2003 issue of Beadwork Magazine, and the artist's name is Janet Flynn Beth McCann.

That's a particularly beautiful piece...you have excellent taste!  Smiley

Thank you so much for the information.
One of the reasons I liked this bracelet so much was the thistle. My husband has been involved with the local Scottish festival for many years. I've wanted something "Scottish-y" to wear. I'd priced a few thistle pins--kilt pins, scarf pins, etc.--and couldn't make up my mind exactly what I wanted. I even wondered if I could make something. And then I saw that thistle bracelet! By the time I got back to the store to buy a magazine, they were all sold out.  Maybe I can get my hands on a back issue. Or maybe this will be one of the designs for sale in the Interweave store.

Thank you again.  I really appreciate it.

You're quite welcome!  I know what it's like to search for a pattern and, groan, not be able to find it.  It's very frustrating.

Good news...the above link allows you to download the pattern for $4.  Interweave has apparently made most (if not all) of the older Beadwork patterns downloadable.  It may also be available in a book...not sure about that...I know Bead & Button compiles their old patterns into new books, and my guess is Interweave does the same.

You're very, very welcome!  I've done so much fruitless pattern searching like that over the years and am really glad to have been able to find exactly what you're looking for.  Smiley

Melanie,

Oh, yes, I quite agree...they're both ultra talented!  I have (and reviewed) Laura McCabe's "Creating Crystal Jewelry with Swarovski"...such a fantastic book!  I haven't yet purchased Marcia DeCoster's book, but have been drooling over it!  Smiley
