Been stalking your jewelry for years to get inspiration. Haven't made anything yet. Don't know how to go from dreaming to doing.

I have been wishing, a watching and a wondering if I will ever be able to take one of your classes. This makes my heart go pitter patter just the thought of winning this class from you. I love to solder and this would be a wonderful new challenge for me. Plus it is my Birthday in June, so what a perfect Birthday Gift for me.

I am a mixed media assembladge artist and I like to design jewelry. I admire your creativity and love your unique style! My heart would skip a beat if I got to take your gorgeous pendant workshop. Thank you for the opportunity to enter. Judy

I would so love to win this. It's been a tough year last year, but I will turn it around!! Thank you. Carlanda

Amy Chouinard said...

I don't know you, but I totally get it. For me it's been taking a class or having a friend over (which is difficult as most of my fiends are in another state and aren't into crafting). Keep dreaming I promise and take classes and eventually you will start....gosh I just get it!!!! I'm slowly getting better!!!!!

Amy Chouinard said...

I was replying to a gal who said she couldn't get going on her craft. Wanted to encourage her and those who struggle. I get it, but I promise the more you do it, the more you want to and the more you feel confidence in what you might be doing!!!

Brooke Bock said...

I see I am in very good company with all the lovely comments... I am a longtime admirer of your creativity and style. I will have a little recovery time on my hands this summer after some surgery and a class would be the perfect distraction. Best of luck to everyone....

Lori Pearl said...

Riki this would be a great gift to win this class. Love your style and the Petite Photo Frames are adorable!!

I would just LOVE to Win a Class from you because you are so top notch talened beyond measure! I am very creative but a very frustrated Jewellery designer. It's just getting my foot in the water which is the problem. I've seen your beautiful work such as intricate details and often thought "She knows so much!" That would be such a DREAM COME TRUE to Win a class from You! My comments towards the end but last is not least! Sometimes we all feel a little lost in the jewellery world and to learn from you would really be a real privilege. Thank you for this lovely chance and may they who win be richly blessed.

Cmmargaret said...
