TWISTED SISTAH


TWISTED SISTAH ONLINE WORKSHOP
ENHANCED VERSION
September 10, 2012
GIVE-AWAY


Such exciting news......after working on my very first online jewelry workshop for several months now, the enhanced version of my "Twisted Sistah" class will soon be available as an online class through Creative Workshops  and as a DVD available in my Etsy store.  I will have kits available containing gorgeous beads, stones, antique buttons, brass sheet, brass wire, copper pipe, and more. We are working hard to put all of the finishing details on every aspect of this epic adventure.

This workshop includes a wealth of techniques (comparable to a 3-day class).  I will be guiding you step-by-step as you learn techniques in:

Cutting and filing metal
Soldering with a micro butane torch
Creating soldered bezels
Using resin in your jewelry designs
Working with various patinas
Working with wire
Soldering chain links
Handmade clasps

For those of you who I have had the pleasure of sharing Twisted Sistah with in class, this online class promises to add a more in-depth adventure into the Twisted world of this whimsical, texture- rich project.  

I hope you will plan on joining me for Twisted Sistah.  The workshop will be available 24 hours, 7 days a week for at least 1 complete year.  

In celebration of my first online workshop, I am  happy to give away a Twisted Sistah DVD....a comprehensive,  3-hour, double disc set complete with all of the information you need to create your own Twisted Sistah choker....or perhaps a cuff...it's up to you. Supply lists and resource lists, of course, included.

TO ENTER INTO THIS GIVE-AWAY:

1.  leave a comment on this post
2.  if you have a blog, please post about Twisted Sistah and link back to this page
3. become a follower of my blog

I will be announcing the winner on September 10th.  So you have about 5 weeks to spread the word and sign-up for the give-away....a $125 value.

I want to thank all of you wonderful followers and friends for your continued support in my design endeavors.  I truly appreciate and value each and every one of you.  

GOOD LUCK!

Fantastic news! I would gladly pay for your DVD-- still cheaper than airfare to attend your class in person, although, that would be great too. :]

Congratulations!
