stay-focused-stay-productiveIt is hard for me to believe that Christmas is almost here. I have had my head down and working hard. It is certainly my style. Once again this term has been extremely exciting. Ok really really busy but exciting. I have learned so much and the ideas are flowing.

Genevieve’s classes stimulated me to start this fabulous pieces that combines basket weave and ndebelle  (which is really one in the same) but I use, both two hole beads and  the original one hole beads in the same piece, magic happens. Eva and Nan’s dip into polymer clay has opened a door for me that I shut along time ago. I find myself wanting to refine my skills in this area to add this amazingly useful and simple clay to my repertoire. On my own I have explored a new wire technique that I am loving and several new methods of adding colour to metal. The results of both are pushing my work forward in leaps and bonds.  I dreamed of a  whole new concept that would make an amazing  jewelry line. The idea seems to be incorporating all that I have been learning for the last 20 years.  So my resolution for the New Year is to spend more time in the studio. Talking about studio space I have added another metal bench and a long work station. So in the New Year I will be offering some rentable time in the metal shop !

Wow!

Twenty years!! and I still have the passion and excitement for this little corner of paradise. Ok, not ever day is happy go lucky but every single day brings learning and growth.free-snowman-clipart-holiday-clip-art-of-a-festive-winter-snowman-decorated-with-colorful-christmas-tree-lights-on-white-by-djart-634
