Here I am ... You have all heard about me

Hi everyone! I know you have heard all about me by now cuz my grandma talks about me in your classes. Well I drove all the way from California with my mom and dad last weekend and I learned all about how to make jewelry. When I grow up I am going to be a "bling girl" just like grandma's friend Mandy.

Sea Breeze

Last week my sister taught the class "Sea Breeze". Everyone did such a great job, and I have to say that Peter J. is one brave man to sit in the class with 7 woman and listen to all our chatter .... he is a trooper.

Thanks to my sister for taking
the time to teach such a beautiful class.

I was thinking I should start sharing some of the work you guys do in class. We all learn from each other, be it color combinations, design or just learning about who we are as people.
Last week the Silver Art Clay class was making watch bands. This is Betty Scott's finished watch band, she is so controlled
with her syringe work. It looks great Betty, good job.

Sneek Peek

Just wanted to let you in on a sneek preview of a few new classes for September.

Keep your eye out for a large button for this new September class. I used a very large vintage button that was given to me by Betty Scott. The bracelet is pretty wide, and I made this one with all crystals to bring out the bling factor.

Rock and Roll

Today was a perfect day for rock cutting. I bought a few new pieces while Greg and I were on vacation. One is a small chunk of white turquoise, called "White Buffalo Turquoise and the other is green turquoise. They both were mined in Tonapah; as a matter of fact the guy who owns both of the mines was in his shop and I got to talking to him about ... what else?? ROCKS, and so he took me back to his shop and showed me around and told me a little about the White Buffalo. He has the only mine that this stuff comes from. When made up in Jewelry it is really pretty. I think I will make a new bracelet.
I love cutting and polishing rocks, it is so theraputic, if anyone is interested in going just let me know and I will hook you up.

So you thought on my day off I wouldn't be working on jewelry??? Think again.
