Classes, classes, classes!
I have been busy this week taking classes. All jewelry related of course, none involving polymer clay though,sorry. This past Saturday, during a Bead show in Clearwater, Florida, I took a Kumi-himo class taught by Audrey Parramore. Audrey is very talented and an exceptional and patient teacher. Here is a picture of a bracelet I made a couple of days after her class.
I have also begun to take some wire wrapping classes near my home. I will have more to say along with photos at a later date.
Lastly, but not least, I took a riveting class at a local bead store in Tampa. Holly is an excellent teacher and also has a shop on Etsy. Here is a photo of what I have done so far.
I really love copper and enjoyed the riveting. Now I know what it is! I also got to experience using Liver of Sulfur for the first time. Not very pleasant, but it gives a great aged patina on your metalwork. Thanks to all these fine ladies who have been so kind to share their skills and knowledge with me.
