Time to work!

2012 is behind us,  and WOW what a year it was!
I've been terribly lax over the December holidays,  just too exhausted by having THREE shows in one season, and plan to do a bit less over-extending,  and to choose wisely 
(Circle Craft and Out of Hand are the givens....I cannot believe how many people in Vancouver actually came hunting for my booth! )    Am considering maybe one other venue in Vancouver,  but NOW it's time to get back to classes.....
here's some exciting news.  I have been offered several new locations in which to hold classes,
perhaps making it a little easier for students to attend.  The one I am most excited about 
is in Sidney BC. 
Contact me for information.
This bracelet pictured is destined for Tatum & Olivia which is located on Beacon Avenue in Sidney.
You can go in and look at the collection,  buy a piece for yourself,  and see what skills I teach.
This particular piece is a resin dome centrepiece,  the work painted and reverse lettered in Italian, by my friend  Joseph Moussa who lives in Florence.  The sterling silver weave is hand done Viking Knit.
The pure silver end caps and beads are my own creations too.

Thank you everyone for such a tremendously successful year in 2012.
I've met a lot of people at the shows,  you'll be getting my newsletter,  and I hope to see you this year.
