Tomorrow I will begin three days of classes I signed up to take at Bead Fest. The first will be a Metal Clay class with Susan Lewis. Friday will be the Rings, Relics and Prong Settings class with Susan Lenart Kazmer; that afternoon a Basic Fusing class with Liz Jones. Saturday I will finish with Sherri Haab, as I take Image Transfers & Color on Metal Clay.
Today we walked around the historic square, taking in all the sights & sounds of downtown Santa Fe, which included visiting the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum. I also went into Mama's Minerals, a cool little bead shop; as well as a great stamp shop called StampaFe Art Stamps. They had a great selection of Frida stamps!
I have alot of photos that I have taken along the road on our way to Santa Fe, and will share them with you when I return home. We have traveled almost 1,300 miles on this trip, and it has been a blast.
Last night I added a soldered charm of my little muse to my Bead Fest necklace. She is always with me. I've told you before, her picture sits on my desk in my work space at home. If I believed in good luck, she would be my lucky charm. But, I don't. I do believe in blessings, and this trip is one for me. My little muse is just along for the ride.
I look forward to the new techniques I will be learning on this trip, and pray I will always be a teachable student. I will share all the details when I get home, you can be sure!
