A couple new wire pendants

Riley (my 8-year-old) received a request for a custom piece. She is such a little sales girl and one of my students is about to be the lucky owner of t he following piece. I am so proud of Riley. She made this pendant almost entirely by herself. The only thing I did on this was to turn the ends of the wire so it didn’t snag on anything, other than that, this next piece is all her.

While she was working on her pendant, I worked on one of my own. I was just playing around to see what else I could come up with for some of my intro to wire classes. I like how this one turned out. When I showed Riley, her eyes just lit up and she gushed and told me how pretty it was and how much she liked it. She is so good for my ego most days.

Winter Class Schedule

Can you believe we are already into November? I cannot believe how quickly time is going. I haven’t made much in the way of jewelry just yet. After the retreat in North Carolina I got sick and it took a couple of weeks to get over that. It wasn’t fun at all. By the time I did recover it was time for Halloween parties and getting the yard ready for winter and so on and so on.

I met with a local bead shop here in The Akron/Canton area called Beads’N More. It is a beautiful shop and they have a great selection of beads, crystals and everything else you can imagine. I am excited to say that starting next week I will begin holding a few classes in addition to my studio here in Norton. Location details can be found on my website or the Beads’N More website.

I have also scheduled my Holiday Open House for Friday, December 5th and Saturday, December 6th. If you are in the area and would like to check out the studio, class projects or just buy some jewelry or Gift Certificates for the holidays be sure to stop by. I would love to have you over.

As always here are some fun pictures for you to check out.
This is a picture of my sweet girls showing off their newly painted faces at a Halloween party.

I have been working on my angels again in hopes to raise money for the Preeclampsia Foundation. Starting December 1st, I am hoping to hold another fundraiser in honor of Kelsi. I will post more details about that soon.
