what I've been working on

New classes are always expected when you teach so I have been experimenting and playing.  Here is a new project that I will release full information on in the next month.  In the mean time this is how it looks now in the raw.  I will bake it then cast a mold for mass production.   Can you guess what it might be?  (besides a doll)
Also, made a little gift for my pal (it was her b-day yesterday).  She's a good freind and you've probably seen her helpin' me out at GF:  She is always there for me and my family. thanks KB

I've really been busy putting all the kits together (they take FOREVER) for my next online class HERE

AND I have a full class this Saturday at WHimzy teaching BOTTLES ENCAUSTIC!  Had to go buy a few lbs of beeswax off to mail some kits and get all the materials together for the class!

OH!  AND putting together another order for The Attic in Coronado!

Yay!!  This Sunday, Nov.6, 11:30-3:30p  I'm teaching a class at a new venue in Pasadena!  Zinnia is a mecca of mixed media, funky fun finds.  I've had several requests from students to teach there and I have my very first class there this Sunday.  I hope you join us!  This is a brand new class not taught any where else and seating is limited so call now!  626-441-2181.  ALL levels welcome.  Go home with finished product.  Fee includes everything to make the necklace.  Just bring some jewelry pliers.  Here is zinnia's link for more
The class is called "Dressing Charlotte".  Learn some of my signature wire wrapping techniques including how to wrap a chandelier crystal and make a cool clasp.  We will dress charlotte from head to toe complete with wings.  Some materials will vary because of the eclectic nature of the necklace but be equally fantastic.  Call to reserve your seat:  626-441-2181, class fee $75 INCLUDES ALL SUPPLIES
