I have been honored once again to have a few pieces of my jewelry featured in this issue. My Pearls of Wisdom choker and cuff are examples of what fun you can have playing with fire, metal, solder and pearls.
I am so very excited to share with you a few pages of Riki Schumacher's, article "The Key to Etching". Riki and I are good friends and team teach mixed media jewelry art classes. I encourage you to visit her blog to see the amazing things this lady is creating. Riki will be teaching at Adorn Me! in Texas next week and has spots left in her two classes. If you have an opportunity to be at Adorn Me! and haven't filled your dance card yet, don't miss taking a class from this extremely talented artist.
And what can I say about this lady Stephanie Lee? She is not only a multi-talented mixed media artist but has the most generous and kindest heart. Her talent runneth over in so many areas. I have taken three classes from Stephanie over the past few years and learned so much. I do have to say that she is one of my mentors hands down.
Carla Reiter's pieces featured in this issue and her absolutely amazing knitting with fine wire techniques just take my breath away. Oh My!!
Be on the lookout for this issue to soon hit the stands. Well, I must return to my packing for Adorn Me! ...will my "to do" lists ever stop???? I am so excited to be traveling with my friend Riki to Houston and meeting up with our friend Diane Cook. What fun is in store meeting new art friends, sharing passions, stories, food and laughter....love it!
