So, does that mean I can add ACSSI behing my name? I'm going to bet that MBA still trumps that! LOL!!! Thought I'd share my pieces. My pendant has a turquoise stone set in her - called "The Child in Me" which I thought was appropriate. You know - we have to "name" our art as we give "birth" to each project!
For the longest time, I thought I'd never make another ring after this one. For me, this was the most difficult piece. It's a calli lillie bud. I probably should have tried for something with a round stone - would have been a little easier! But I love the end result on this piece.
And while this was not the easiest piece....it was the most fun to work on! A dress form (simple enough) with the skirt made using a syringe filled with metal clay over cork clay that burnt off in the kiln. The skirt is front and back and connected on the bottom where the crystal dangle. It's a pin.
So what does this mean - because I've been teaching metal clay classes all along. Now I can certify others to teach. And it seems like people are lining up right and left...I just need more days in my calendar to schedule you all in!!!
I still contend that the best thing any of us can do in this economy is to load up on classes. I finished my glass class today and can pick up my pieces on Thursday night. So while I teach.....I'm taking classes as well! It's a well balanced life at the moment!
If you are interested in getting certified in metal clay (fine silver) or if you are just interested in a beginning level or introductory class, check out my class website here:
Just scroll across the top section to click on all the different classes that I offer. No dates scheduled....but I can probably design a class any time you want! I'll go back and add a First Level and Senior Level Certification course to these in the near future! Now, while the classes are in my studio in Colorado, I do have a guest bedroom and am more than happy to have you stay here while taking classes! Can't get much easier than that!
