Workshop in LA March 22, 2014

THIS IS FUN NEWS!
Maybe you can put this workshop on your Christmas list??
Queen's Lace Necklace Workshop

For my friends in the Los Angeles and surrounding areas, I am finally teaching a workshop in your area!  I can't tell you how thrilled I am about that.

Announcing Queen's Lace, a fun new workshop, never taught, will incorporate a new mixed media photo process, called Auratones, along with making a beautiful necklace.

Recently, a lady contacted me about collaborating with her about doing a workshop.  Her name is Barbara Buckles.  She had invented a process of using a photograph, and making it look something like what Edward Curtis would make, the talented photographer from the 1800's who used to photograph the plains Indians. And she thought my vintage jewelry style, with the French flair, would be just the ticket for a workshop to teach her process, then we make a pendant focusing on the photo.

So....voila!
Here is what I came up with.  I decided to try some new techniques, that would allow the student to play with the metal a little more, not just adorning it with some delicate stampings, but give it a touch of "lace" look.  These are so much fun to make, I love them!  And then you will set the bezel with one of Barbara's altered photos, giving the pendant a rich and antique look.  Just lovely.

Barbara and I have met a couple of times now, as fate has it.  She is a doll, and it will be so much fun to teach with her.


So I hope you will come play with us at the workshop. Here are all the details. Oh, and Barbara found a fabulous loft gallery in LaBrea to hold the workshop.  I'm stoked!  I'm feeling so lucky that Barbara found me, we were able to put this workshop together, and offer this to you.
