I will be teaching two workshops to inspire...

Grandma's Jewelry Box
Sat, Sept 29th from 9 am - noon
Each student will be provided with a beautiful kit of salvaged treasures from Grandma’s Jewelry Box including found objects and reclaimed pretties.  Along with the found treasures your kit will also contain wire & findings to put together your unique, one of a kind treasure.  I encourage you to bring your own treasures to make it uniquely your own.  You will learn simple wire techniques, connecting your treasures & aging your metals.  This class is great for the beginner or the advanced.  All levels encouraged to come & create together!

Limited seating so Register early!

Snapshots of Life
Sat, Sept 29th from 1 - 4 pm

“A good snapshots stops a moment from running away.” Eudora Wetley.  Capture your memories & moments in this vintage inspired album.  Gather your photos that stitch your story of family, friends & precious moments.  This album is filled with vintage findings, keys, lace, fabrics & papers.  Showcase this album in a vintage strawberry container that comes in your kit.

Bring your girlfriends and capture your memories. 

Seating is limited so register early!

I LOVE your Grandma's Jewelrly Box! I love all the little details of this piece. I also pinned your necklace design because I think this would be amazing if I could design it with my own Grandmother's vintage jewelry! :)
