Finished this this brooch today. I love the Japanese women I found on an old tea tin. It will go to Imagine in Skaneateles later this week.

I took a class yesterday with Julie Simancek at Studio 34 in Rochester and learned to make tiny rivets. Very much fun.

One step closer to being finished. Now to make the ear wires.

Yesterday the temperature flirted with 50 and I opened the windows of the car on the way home from work. I even saw a robin in the yard. Today there is a gale blowing, swirling snow, 18 degrees, and cancelled plans. I wonder where that poor bird is today? The workshop is a good place to hide out from the weather. Ah, all the ingredients for a new batch of earrings.

The class at Craft Chemistry went very well, all made great beads which became necklaces. A good group of students. The skies got very dark while there and a squall passed though Syracuse bringing white out conditions while all were hammering away. Quite a cacophony! Also included is a display of my products that Briana, the store owner with the great smile, has artfully arranged.

My new design of the week actually began last week at a meeting I doodled my way through. I'll have to copy the paper and glue it into my sketchbook!

Been getting ready for the bead class. I hope many attend and we have lots of fun. I want people to learn how fun it is to work with this material.

New Design

Snow days are great. I was able to work on a design I started earlier this year and bring it to fruition using some springs I had been fascinated with a while ago.
