Hand Painted Zippered Bag

 

In January of this year I taught surface design techniques from one of my favorite books “Acrylic Techniques” by Roxanne Padgett. Well, we just finished the best instructional book on painted surface design.

The members of the group and I had a great time. Chapter by chapter, we made color wheels, scribbled with paint, layered with stamps and made and used texture plates.  Everyone enjoyed themselves.

 I’ve been beading for well over 30 years, long before all the beautiful beads and findings you see available now. I enjoy making all kinds of beaded jewelry. I love mixed media jewelry. Metal dapping and stamping are my favorite. I especially enjoy teaching jewelry making of all kinds. I don’t limit myself to experienced beaders and jewelry students. I love teaching beginners. Students who have no experience are a wonderful additional to any class. I can not wait to see what my students create.

I'm Working On It

There’s a time in your life that you need to wake up and make things happen. You need to get the show on the road. Well I need to get moving and make things period.  As I sit here with ten day before Christmas and not a single gift under the tree, nothing made, nothing to wrap. I’m not inspired to do anything and time is running out.
