Long Time, No See~ And an Online Jewelry Workshop to Get Ready For~!~

So excited here..... while I've been away from my blog, I have been busy readying myself to teach TWO (that's 2!) online workshops over at Creative Workshops.  My altered heart pendants, and some assembled chains to complement the pendants. Of course you can take just one of the classes, or save a little $ and sign up for both, if you are are so inclined.  Stay tuned, because a free giveaway is in the works!  I'll be sure to keep you informed so you don't miss out on the fun.

New Workshop .... 3 Weeks Away~!~

 If you are in the south eastern Michigan area and love vintage style jewelry, this  is for you!!  On Saturday, March 1,  I will have the pleasure of teaching a jewelry workshop at Heavenly Scent Herb Farm , where  we will make this beautiful, vintage style necklace.  Oodles of rhinestones, crystals, rosary segments, wire wrapped beads and chain segments will make up the chain portion of this long,  mid-chest piece and the pendant is made of an ornate escutcheon (antique keyhole) and skeleton key.  You will learn many basic jewelry skills, how to distress and age metal, how to build layers and design your own chain out of found objects and beads.  Class size is limited, so if you are interested,   check out mid-Heavenly Scent Herb Farm's website  for sign up info.  Don't miss out!

Something Wicked This Way Comes~!~!

Fall is here, and so is the season of witches, goblin's and things that go "bump" in the night!  My favorite time is upon us.  To me, the "holidays" that most people consider Christmas and New Year's, actually begins just before Halloween.  That is when my mind goes into overdrive with plans, creations and decorations to come.  Soon I will be taking the black and orange decor down and replacing it with white and silver.   But before that happens, I clicked a few shots of some of the Halloween vignette's around our house~   Happy Haunting!!
