I'm going to see my family for 4 days and am a little stressed because I have to get ready for VEGAS! Plus I'm teaching a class the day before I leave for Vegas so as much as I love seeing my family (they live about 3 hours away) I thought I would be a little farther along with all my prep, but it always works out in the end. I am going to Vegas in about a week for a sold out 2 day workshop and have been organizing and putting about 40 kits together. The thing about my kits is that I can't just go to my local craft store and buy the materials....they're vintage findings so it's a little stressful trying to find everything but at the same time it is fun and it's all about the hunt, rummaging flea markets, tracking ebay, checking out thrift stores. Plus I always do more than I need to so the students can finish their project by preping a lot of the jewelry pieces.
The pic below is a class that will be held at Piecemakers, Costa Mesa Ca,April 10 from 10a-3 called the Petite Soldered Box Pendant. Call 714-641-3112 to reserve your seat.
