Making Jewelry!

It's been a while since I took a class
about something I know nothing about.

Jewelry...
Not one of my strongest suites.





I am a minimalist when it comes to the stuff
but figured I could learn something new
and incorporate it into some kind of decor.

{Can't wait till the holidays!
I hope my thoughts come to fruition.}

~The Mermaid Cuff~
by Robin Dudley-Howes


This cuff above was make by Robin, our teacher.
Not sure how I could make something like that!

The setting:
Rita Reade's Cottage home (Mammabellarte).
HOT!!
Potluck lunch.
Delicious Tiramasu, made by Rita.

Miss. Robin!
We were neighbors at a previous Vintage Marketplace.

A collection of kits to choose from. I was starting to perspire
seeing all those beads LOOSE in there!

A picture of the kit I chose. My instincts gravitated towards the
black/gold/red, but I fought it and chose something
un-ordinary (for me) for my project.

I'm thinking at this point, "Yeah, right!".

Wowzy! That's how they do it!

The girls... L to R... Donette, Christie, Christine and Pam.
(not shown: Rita and... dang it, I forgot her name)

My fish tendencies... shiny stuff!

In process... I'm starting to get excited!

Just about done!

Finished! With a little tulle on the back~Gorgeous!

Voila!

It was a FUN day!
Mother Nature finished our class off with a very
nice Thunderstorm!
I drove home with the windows down because
I LOVE the smell of a Summer Rain.

Beautiful. Just Beautiful...
All of it.

xo, Amber
