June is approaching and the Bead & Button Show in Milwaukee is on my mind. I love learning and have signed up with some of the best forging and emaneling teachers.
Along with my necessary tools, I'm also bringing along an aluminum hairspray can and tin cans to experiment with. I'll be learning techniques to manipulate metal with hammers as well as emameling glass onto metal. Oh, and a class working with faux bone. How cool is that?
Being a child at heart, I'm excited for this adventure and the new friendships that will form. Besides that, what new jewelry designs will I come up with next? Stay tuned...
