There's nothing better than being with like mined souls…… Friends from classes of the past, Kim Caldwell of Artistic Bliss(amazing Art Events that I love to go to) & some of our friends from that Art Scene joined us.
Taking a sheet of metal, cutting your shape & adorning the whole thing with bits & baubles of goodness. Above is the finished projects by all the girls. The little opening (for a photo) is only 1 inch.
My buddy Riki Schumacher is a great teacher (click on her name & you can go visit her blog) & we all had soooooooooooo much fun being together to learn & play.
Here’s a close up of my finished piece. I am ready to find just the right photo to put inside. But, you could also use this concept (without the hole) to make a necklace focal piece.
I got to see my friends Susan Hunt & Diana Salvuchi & it brought back fond memories from the very first jewelry class back in 2009. Both these sweet girls were at my table at that class. And I have been blessed to be able to see them now & again at other classes.
There’s NOTHING BETTER THAN BEING WITH BESTY’S! Where the heck is Joy & Laurie in this photo?
Ahhhhhh Ms Joy is working on her project!
The whole event was hosted at Joy' Campbell’s beautiful home. This is a photo of her in her adorable studio. She is indeed an amazing hostess. The food & presentation was over the top!
The day before class Joy, Laurie, Vickie, Cindy & I all went downtown Claremont to enjoy a really fun alfresco lunch.
And on Sunday after the class a few of us went to a great Flea Market to scoop up some treasures. The jewelry, dolls, bits & pieces all found there way into our bags (or boxes shipped home).
Here’s Joy &^ Laurie with proof of the treasures! Look at Joy’s buggy it’s full & Laurie is toting a BIG sack of goodies. Thank you Joy for the hospitality & having us all together. And thank you Riki for coming to teach us & share your talent & fun spirit. And thank you to all my friends who make my life so much more meaningful. I love you each so much!
I’m sorry I am so very behind in all my posts & I hope to do a better job going forward but, I have been traveling so much & the make up at work is over whelming when I return. So…. my poor blog has suffered. I really hope to do better in 2013. Thanks for hanging in there with me. I love to know you’ve stopped by so leave me a comment to say hello. And thank you Riki for letting me borrow some of your photos for this post!
