Letters From Our Readers 36.3
wonderful to have both
By the way, to contribute to the ongoing discussion of print versus digital, I think it is wonderful to have both. I like being able to read the magazine, have it in my hand, on the train, in bed, or on the sofa. On the other hand, the visual images of the jewelry and clothing come across even more brilliantly on my twenty-seven-inch Apple screen. So, please keep both.

your magazine’s generous support
On behalf of the American Museum of Ceramic Art, I would like to again express my sincere gratitude for the generous service you are providing for our museum members. There are not enough ways in which we can thank our members for their valuable support, but with your help we can provide them with a better sense of value and appreciation. Your magazine’s generous support is valued here, and we all look forward to working with Ornament for many years to come. I hope that our contact expands from just the exchange of members desiring subscriptions and develops into a fruitful exchange of support between both of our organizations. Please let us know if there is anything the American Museum of Ceramic Art can do for Ornament Magazine! We hope that you come visit us soon, and thank you again for your support in our endeavors.

continuing to inform and inspire
As a gesture of appreciation for Ornament, which I have been reading since it was The Bead Journal, I am sending you five Haiku I wrote about beads. Although I am not a professional jewelrymaker, or poet, the challenges of designing with beads and writing poems provide similar satisfactions. I hope that Ornament will continue to inform and inspire far into the future; it is mind expanding.

String poem strands like beaded
Jewelry to read
Once a bead necklace
Beads serve to worry,
Meditate, pray, count worth or
Display social state
Worn as object of desire,
Wear beads to declare
A stylish presence always

rereading the older copies
The magazine just gets better with each passing year—it is great fun to go back and reread the older copies—there never seems to be an end to the wonderful artistic abilities of people and how encouraging in this world of so much strife; keep up the good work.
from our facebook friends
Love this issue (Volume 36, No. 2), especially enjoyed “Gustav Reyes” and “Kiffa Beads of Mauritania” articles. Beautiful issue as always.
