Happy Monday! For those who have asked , my next workshops will be at "Stampaway" convention in Cincinnati in August. Both of my workshops are on August 11. The "Haunted Little Houses" soldering and beyond class is full now, but the "Adventures in Paper Clay Jewelry " is still open . One of things we will be creating is the "Pumpkin Fairy Necklaces" as seen in Somerset Holidays and Celebrations Magazine Fall 2010. We will also be sculpting on vintage skeleton keys and transferring images onto the clay! To sign up for the class, clicking on the photos will take you to the Stampaway Convention site.
I have been working with my vintage broken china again lately, but with a very different way of framing them. This allows me to add the beautiful vintage elements like my favorite Victorian cut steel. This vintage Flow Blue necklace will be available on my PFATT page at 10am west coast time on May 10th. And the Winner of the kit for all 3 vintage flower pin backs is...... "Trapshootermd" ! Yay congratulations! There is no email address , or blogger profile for you , so please, please, please, email me with your shipping information , so I can get your gift to you!
And, finally here is my "Show and Tell Monday " piece for you. A vintage tintype necklace made from repurposed, upcylcled, vintage findings, and destrung vintage beads. Of course, the Victorian cut steel frame is my favorite : ) The lovliness of fine details in antique cut steel" anything", is one of those things that always pushes my buttons when I am out and about vintage gallivanting!
This "Lady Germaine" necklace will be available on my Etsy at 3pm eastern time. My "Show and Tell Monday post will be on Wednesday next week, as we are going to Jeffrey's Navy Graduation this weekend! We are very excited to see him, and to get to spend a couple of days with him in Great Lakes IL (where base is) Blessings,
