What I've been working on....

The beginning of the year I wasn't creating much, mostly researching products and formulating new samples for classes and now I'm in high gear.  Here is what I've been up to:

Little leather coin purse

Years ago Nina Bagley was making necklaces with adorable, old leather coin purses.  Inspired, I made one myself, but only one because they are very difficult to find.   I just love the way they are worn and so darn cute so after some research and experimenting I figured out how to make my own.  Of course I'm making it into a class so if you live in Los Angeles or San Diego we are are in the process of scheduling.  I know for sure the first class will be held at Whimzy, in Old Town Tustin Ca., on April 29th from 10:30-4:30.  Everything will be included so you can make your own little piece of history!
