Etsy shop up and running!

Well,I finally got it done,I now have an Etsy shop up and running! I have listings of the silk acorns,oak leaves and acorns,and even a few pieces of the acorn jewelry including some new earrings that are so cute.
All the pieces are made by me,from patterns designed by me. Since they have real acorn caps and are handstiched,no two are exactly alike
If there is something that you would like multiples of,just e-mail me and i can set up a special listing just for you.

New Class!

I'll be teaching a new class on Sunday October 2,2011 at Paper Tales and it's perfect for the upcoming Halloween festivities!
This little candy box is shaped like a witch's hat and is so cute. I will teach you how to make the box,this is not a class where i hand you a store bought box and then you decorate it. You will learn to make the box and i will give you the pattern to make more. As is usual in my classes,ALL the supplies will be provided and you should leave with a finished piece.
Go to the Paper Tales site and sign up,I look forward to seeing you there!
Also,as you can see,I've been very busy working on new acorns and oak leaves and I will be bringing these to the class with me!

Workshop with Amy Hanna

I spent yesterday in Malibu with my friend Tammie! We took an Artinfusio workshop with Amy Hanna and had a wonderful time. I have long been an admirer of Amy's work and it was such fun to meet her and see her jewelry up close.
This is the necklace i made in the class.
The centerpiece is this gorgeous antique shoe clip that was a gift from my husband many years ago.

The faux coral bead and resin charm with the photo of a woman's hand were given to me by Tammie. I love how the necklace turned out and i loved spending the day with other creative women!
