I honestly cannot believe that it is June time has flown all to quickly as of late! I am in the studio it seems all too briefly this week preparing for two more upcoming trips and attempting to fill up my Etsy store.
Create was an absolutely amazing experience and I truly cannot wait to apply for next year, the students were delightful and as always it allows me the opportunity to not only create with a group of talented women but also spend time meeting those I have grown to now via the internet.
During the month of July I plan on planting my feet in Southern Oregon and not leaving. While home I will be teaching a two part jewelry class in historic Jacksonville (if you are in the area be sure to drop by this weekend as Taste of Summer kicks off). I hope you'll consider joining me as it will truly be a delightful experience in a wonderful venue in the perfect little town.
Trolley Stop Jacksonville Oregon (541) 702-2212
July 7th and July 14th 1:00 – 4:00
Delectable crushed velvet, antique buttons, a bit of tattered lace and an array of French knots become the perfect embellishment to a divine centerpiece composed of resin filled bezels, pearls and antique findings.
Join me for an amazing two days of jewelry creation. I will guide you through the techniques needed to create an artistic composition within a bezel; we will then bring your piece to life by adding a dollop of resin, which will forever encase your creation in faux glass. In class I’ll teach you my no fail wire wrapping technique as well as the processes I use to create unique clasps, jump rings and altering found objects.
