Coronado Dreaming

The time went by way to quickly....
is now a sweet, sweet memory packed away 
in this itty bitty brain of mine.
I had loads of fun with two of my fellow teachers and dear buddies,
Riki Schumacher & JoAnnA Pierotti.

I knew this one would be special.
But, they all are.
Think this one just a little more though =)
On Friday I taught one of my favorite cuff classes,
On a Wing.
(side note:  I'm teaching this class at Art Unraveled,
and it's filling up fast =) 
Here's my Friday buds.
Sally, Mary, Jan
Dawn, Joan, Marilyn, =) and Crystal

Saturday was another great class day,
as I taught 
By the Sea,  
which is one of my gilding with solder classes.
I love teaching this technique, and have to tell you I never tire of it! 
What a special group of ladies on Saturday....
Marilyn, Joan, Ann
Sally, Celelesie, =) and Celeste
Here's a few of their creations.
I love the amazing attachments they brought along to place on their collars.
*****
Sunday I taught one of my torch fired enameling classes that I call
Framed.
I love teaching this class.  
But, the tiny mother of pearl belt buckles are becoming more & more difficult to find, even though I think I might have one more batch =)
*wink*
 Here's a couple of student's pendants.
Aren't they just the best, and so full of personality?
Oh, don't want to forget....
we also went on a group field trip that Saturday to The Attic, 
a sweet antique shop on the island...
all planned by our lovely hostesses
Barb & Erin.


What a great group of ladies!
*****
BTW....I have just finished a second enameling class,
and 
it will premiere at  
Art Retreat at The Prairie,
in Round Top, Texas...this Fall.
Barb is about to open up registration any day now....
Hope to see you there,
or at my next teaching gig, 
which is next month...
in Phoenix, Arizona!

Diane, your classes, the event, and the venue really look like a dream. I can only imagine the fun with teachers like you and Riki - and being surrounded by such wonderful ladies. Their work is amazing - I was so in awe looking at their beautiful collars. And the field trip - anything to do with the word Attic sounds like a good time to me! :-) Your new Poppies class looks beautiful & I know it will be another popular workshop!

Ohhhhh I likey that new class you showed in the last photo!!!! Fall.... hmmmm we'll have to see the dates. I'm at Terry Brush Art Camp first of October but, if the dates work I might have to check this one out. The girls did a GREAT job on all their pieces! I LOVED the "Framed" class when I took it from you & I NEED to finish that piece!!! Time... I never have enough. HUGS!
