Workshops & Classes for Jewelry Design That I have Signed Up For

Art Unraveled is a wonderful venue that many of you have been to in the past. I have never gone but, have wanted to. In 2010 they are doing ADORN ME a Jewelry Only Event in Houston, Texas! Imagine that.... something so close that doesn't involve air travel for me. I am so excited. Hurry over & check out all of the FAMOUS folks that will be instructing at this wonderful event. Hope you will sign up & join me. If you do be sure & drop me a note so I know to look for you there.

My friend & mentor Diana Frey will again be teaching & I am blessed to have gotten into her class called TWISTED SISTAH CHOKER I am very excited to take this class. Just look at the beauty of this piece. I took her Secret Shaker Doll Necklace class in Spring 2009 & loved it. This is the next class I have chosen for Adorn Me. It is taught by Diane Cook & is called Crystal Princess. Isn't this piece marvelous? I can't wait to have this treasure in my collection. The third class I will be taking is by Deryn Mentock but, I have no photo for this class. If you go to the Adorn Me site click on "Artists" you can see the photos for each class being given by that instructor. Also teaching will be another buddy of ours Riki Shumacher. Come Join us for a lot of fun in March 2010.

And last but, not least there is one more class I just signed up for & it is Resolutions of the Heart taught by Diane Cook in Round Top, Texas on January 16, 2010. (Yes, the same place that Lisa & I just went to the HUGE Antique Fair in late September) In this class we will be learning many basic skills as well as engraving which was what set the final hook for me on this class. Diane I am so excited about this class too & thank you for getting us some other venues for such wonderful things. Hope some of you might want to go for this goody since it is also close by for those of us in Texas & it is a perfect cure for after Christmas BLAHS. We could share a ride & a great time if you are from my area. Let me know if you are interested. Hope I shared some information with you that will wet your Creative Side & challenge you to TRY SOMETHING NEW! Stretch to grow! Hugs!

You are going to be a busy girl, Charlene. I adore ALL of the necklaces!! I could never imagine making something so intricate and pretty. I admire you for keeping up with all the classes. I could use something to occupy myself with. How did you get started?

Have a great rest of the week!

Hey Charlene, The crystal necklace is TDF. I'm thinking about taking a class like this but for beginners...You know, where the teacher holds up a bead and says "this is a bead" You pumpkin decorating is awesome and I love your little Reba...she is adorable...I want one! Have a great day with "honey" and talk at ya later!

Cindy said...

Just found your blog through links and I must say your art is beautiful! And what a LUCKY lady to be able to attend Adorn Me...all of the classes you are planning to take are on my wish list (but I'm on the East Coast!). I would especially love to take a class with the wonderful Diane Cook!

All of the jewelry is just gorgeous. I can't wait to see what you make. Sounds like all of the classes will be a lot of fun. Thanks for stopping by and your suggestions on my tureen. I really appreciate it. Oh, I was just sick when I read that your tureen broke. I think I would have cried. Hugs, Marty

Donna said...

The jewelry is beautiful! Please show us what you make after classes.
I have so many hobbies now, I don't know which one to work on!
Since Amber's passing I can't get motivated to do anything :(
Thank you for reading about Amber on my blog.

These are beautiful pieces, I especially love the crystal one. Thanks for stopping by. DH just got a Canon 40D. I no absolutely nothing about cameras. I have a point and shoot coolpix that I carry in my purse everywhere, and an older Nikon that I'm trying to learn to be a better photographer with lol. The college ruins are in the Southeast part of Salado, at the top of College Hill Rd. They are at the top of a hill and DH says if you don't look up you'll miss it. Glad you liked the shots! Kathy

I LOVE the crystal princess necklace. A friend made me earrings out of the chandelier prisms & I love them.

Have you heard about this retreat in Salado in April? I think I'm going.
