I am grateful and make it my intention to say so everyday. One of the many things I am grateful for are the students that come to my classes and the establishments that let me teach. I had a great class yesterday at Piecemakers. Here are some fuzzy pictures of the students. Let's see there was Dana, Irene (she owns the Garden of Beadin' store), Andrea all from the Upland area and on the left Stephanie, her mom Janae, Carol and Liz (from San Diego area). Great students and talented in their own right. Thanks to you all!
These pictures of my new necklace creations were fun to make and the photos I took were experiments with lighting and effects. One of them relates to the pile "o" pink post below. I like the way it came out. For those of you who make dolls you might relate to the next few sentences. I generally start projects with a theme or color scheme in mind and usually it takes on a life of its own from there. This is really true with the treasure necklaces and the altered art bottles.... a life of their own I mean. That's why I bring up doll making.....and you doll makers know what I'm talking about.....or should I say what "their" talking about. That voice and personality that takes over your project and channels life into it. That's all I'm saying....zipping my mouth and throwing out the key now! Check out my Etsy tonight or tomarrow. They'll be for sale.
