Here is a heads up on my favorite place to buy sterling silver wire. From July 29th-Aug.1 Thunderbirdsupply.com is having their quarterly super sale!!! You get the 500 oz price on any amount of forged metal supplies plus lots of other sale stuff. And their shipping options won't send you to the poor house.
On another note, Whimzy in Irvine is having me teach for the first time at their lovely establishment Sunday Aug.8. It's my tube earring class and they only have 2 sign ups meaning if we can't get at least 6-8 students the class will be dropped so if you have been wanting to take this class sign up now! All materials included (sterling wire, real garnets & pearls, findings, class handout) $55, 1-4pm. Go HERE to register.
