Charming Romance workshop


I am blown away by the talent that took part in the Charming Romance charm bracelet class this weekend.

Many of the students had never worked in PMC, and look at the amazing job they did.

What inspiration I get in return for instructing.  I can't begin to tell you how rewarding it is to share what I know with such wonderful ladies, and see their enthusiasm.

It is so contagious.

A few of the samples from mixing pmc, found objects and etched metals.

Here's the darling Sandy from LA! Another great talent!

Two kind of local girls, Jody and Theresa!
Talent is just abundant this weekend!

A talented mom and daughter team, Crystal and Claire.  Is Claire precious or what? And what a talent, look out everyone, Claire is coming through, make room in the jewelry industry!

Two more great talents, Joy, from LA,  and Charlene (from Texas no less).  
I'm just sayin!

If you can't have fun in class teaching, when can you have fun???

Thank you to each and every one of you in class, we had so much fun this weekend.
I hope you all feel you learned a ton of things, and will have the opportunity to play and play with the techniques.


 of course, the AG blog hop continues!!
I hope you are following along??
