Vegas Baby!

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.

Just beautiful and so delicate =) Know what you mean about vintage findings, as I am constantly on the search~Etsy, antique shops AND the huge Warrenton/Round Top show I attend twice a year. Just got back and am trying to sift thru my finds~that is a task in itself =)
