giveaway-virtualloriI’m giving away a custom stamped and domed sterling silver pendant in this week’s Cleveland Handmade giveaway. Just visit the Cleveland Handmade website for information on how to enter.

Six yards of mulch was delivered on Monday; after four hours Monday afternoon, five hours Tuesday afternoon, and five hours yesterday, it’s all been placed where needed. In truth, I could have used another yard or two for some other spots. But I’m done with mulch for the year.

The leaves have been glorious this week, but today they’re coming down so thick and fast, it’s almost like a blizzard. I’m wondering if there will be any left on the trees at the end of the weekend.

I had a great group for my etching class on Wednesday night. I love it when my students can relax and have fun with each other.

Jewelry Exploration

Posted: September 9th, 2008 | Author: | Filed under: art, classes, jewelry | Comments Off on Jewelry Exploration

My class times have been set for October’s Jewelry Exploration at Bead Q.

I’ll be teaching etching on Saturday, October 25, 9 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. in Chagrin Falls and on Sunday, October 26, 12:30–3:30 p.m. in North Olmsted.

Additionally, I will be teaching Beading 101: Necklaces and Bracelets on Saturday, October 25, 2–5 p.m. in North Olmsted. This is a beginner stringing class in which you will learn about different stringing materials and findings (clasps, crimps, jump rings) and then use that knowledge to make necklaces and/or bracelets from beads and materials you selected and purchased before the class (list provided at registration). Major emphasis will be placed on learning to crimp properly, which is the foundation of making pieces that last.

To register, stop in or call the shop where the class will be held: Chagrin Falls 440-708-1771; North Olmsted 440-734-2323.
