with my own two hands

Crystal
made a basket necklace for "A Charming Exchange" and we have decided to steep it out in the book... so last night I sat down to recreate crystal's basket from memory because all the jewelry has been sent off to be photographed... so when I went online to look at what she had done, I discovered that my baskets did not look like hers at all!!! the basket on the left is a close match and I feel that this will be the one that we will steep out :)

I will be teaching a class at Bellaluna Beads in East Dundee Illinois On Wednesday August the 8Th and I will be doing a demo on my fabric Jewelry (if you happen to be in town all my jewelry from the CPS article is there on view as well as Crystals and my just simply charming charm bracelet that is featured in this months Bella Amoire) on Monday I will have all the details worked out and will post them here.

Bellaluna looks like it has great classes! I want to take yours! And it's closer to me that California! Still a 9+ hour drive..... I wish that I knew how to drive. My chauffeur has a day job and can't drive me places mid-week....

I can't believe that I have waited almost a year for you to come to Chicago and I won't be here!! I will be in Phoenix attending Art Unraveled while you are here teaching. I was so looking forward to meeting you and I would have loved to take your class. I hope that you will come again sometime soon.
