The New Year and Classes

Friday, January 25th, 2008

Amazingly, I have survived another holiday season.  Although, as usual, it took its toll in time and energy as evidenced by the fact that I have not written a single item here for almost three months. Well, Happy New Year (a bit late) and back to work!

I have been able to get a few classes together and written several proposals, so my time hasn’t been all fun and games.

I do love Swarovski Rivolis so I have done a series of classes using them. The pieces are all in 24 kt gold plate, Swarovski bicones and Rivolis.  I love wearing them to events and have gotten lots of compliments.

As soon as I have all my pictures of the pieces ready, I will add them here as well as on the class page on the website.

Design Class

Thursday, November 1st, 2007

I suppose that it was inevitable that with working on my Master Craftsman in Design and taking Creative Sketchbooks that I would get the urge to teach a design class. I just have to use the knowledge I am getting with others as well as using it in my work.  I am loving design. I can that it is a life long study!

I have a basic outline for one class: Design from Inspiration to Implementation.  It is a four day workshop geared toward both ANG and EGA.

Most of the class material has been written also and now I am working through the samples and teaching pieces.  I plan to have it ready by early 2008.

Then I have another idea for a design class based on the Golden Rectangle.
