Charming, dahling!


Last night I got to talk with Denise over at Rosa & Josies...what a sweet gal! And a fellow jewelry artist/nuthead/enthusiast. Anyway, I told her one of my favorite classes that I ever attended was one at the BABE show in Oakland a little over a year ago. The instructor was Tracy Stanley--a fabulous wire and metal jewelry artist and encouraging terrrific warm funny etc etc teacher. The BEST! Anyway, the class was called "Simply Charming" and she taught us how to stamp, antique, and form the wire and bead caps for a cool charm bracelet. Here's mine. Aaaalllll mine! Ha~ It's so fun and eye-catchy. If you ever get a chance to take one of her classes---do it!!
And may you Praise God, Love Always, Pray Hard, Give Thanks and Have Faith~

That is so cool you and Diane visited on the phone. Isn't it a miracle how we can connect with others in this fast blogging net? You both are so creative and do such beautiful jewelry art.

I love your charm bracelet too! Very unique...I love the stamping you do on those discs. :)
