Registration for Coronado has opened!

Lookie what opened up this week?
Registration for classes in the beautiful seaside town of Coronado, California!
And, it will be held at the quaint boutique hotel of 
June 22-24, 2012.
I will be teaching three of my favorite classes when I come to visit southern California.
My newest class
Window to My Heart
A mixture of metal work, mica, wire, vintage rhinestones (if you likey =), 
and cool tools.
 Doesn't this look like fun?
I will teach this cuff class on Friday, June 22nd.
Then...
how about some of this lusciousness?
I don't know about you, but his picture almost makes my heart stop every time I look at it.
Crystal Confetti
 Loads of vintageness in these pieces, along with gemstones, baroque pearls, Swarovski crystals, Czech fire polished crystals, a vintage rhinestone center , a faceted chandelier crystal and brass components, all happily dangling from a retro rope chain =)
Yumm...
 And then there is more!
 Heart Strings
on Sunday, June 24th.
I never tire of this class, and actually I will be teaching this one online for 
Artful Gathering this summer.
But, if you want to be with me in person...here is the time. 
I have seen so many variations in the tassels designed by my students...you just wouldn't believe.  I love the ideas students come up with, 
and most often the things they use in their strings represent
something tied to their heart
which is exactly what I shared here in the Belle Armoire Jewelry article, 
when I wrote about my very own Heart Strings,  
in the Spring of 2011.
So that's about it for now.  I am busy tweaking my videos for the two online classes I'll be teaching at Artful Gathering...and getting ready for a full weekend of family.  
Saturday my husband and I will be attending a family wedding (and eat wedding cake) 
and on Sunday we will be having a  
I will get to spend time with my daughter and her new fiance, 
and our grandchildren 
(oh, yes that will come with their parents).
 Now that is really
YUMMMMM!
p.s. Don't hesitate if you want to join me in California, 
as the spots are limited at this retreat =)

Diane, your classes in Coronado look fabulous and will be SO much fun for all.
Sounds like you have a great weekend ahead...enjoy the wedding (and the cake!), and a great big CONGRATS to Melanie - wishing her the best. This reminded me of the wonderful piece you had published a while back - the wedding necklace....sounds like it will be time to bring it out soon! :-)
