Etched & Layered
In preparation for my Etched & Layered class,
(and three more times after this one)
I finished my newest cuff last night.
I find myself trying to catch my breath as I think about seeing old friends
and meeting new ones. I will be in Fullerton in just over a week,
where I will teach two classes~one being Etched & Layered.
I will be at Gilding the Lily on Saturday, May 21st.
(I will be teaching Heart Strings there on May 22nd).
Many I have only talked to online.
I do confess,
I am constantly on the lookout for vintage rhinestone brooches, ear clips,
shoe buckles and vintage buttons.
I probably have more than you can imagine.
But, when I saw this one sitting in one of the vendor's cases at my local antique shop,
I immediately knew I wanted it.
Now I know for sure it was worth every penny.
The best part of "Emerald Lady" (for me) is the gorgeous brass piece behind the Ruiz Studios 1920s brooch. It is one that Jill, at Brass Bouquet, named "Diane".
I thought this was a beautiful piece of filigree the moment I saw it.
Thank you Jill for such a beautiful honor.
And don't forget,
if you are on the east coast, registration is now open for ArtBLISS,
where I will be teaching Etched & Layered on September 24th.
I am sprinting past today only slowing down for tomorrow - diane =)
