I am so very excited! I just registered and signed up for my classes at ArtBliss in September! This is an awesome venue created by Jeanette Blix and Cindy Wimmer. I was lucky enough to have attended the inaugural ArtBliss a couple of years ago- I took one class - K.reating A.rt B.eads with Kerry Bogert . At the time, I had only been involved in making jewelry for less than a year. I knew no -one there, I did not read but two-three blogs, did not have a blog...you get the picture. However, I happened upon Kerry's book, Totally Twisted at my local bead store in Occoquan, Virginia, and I instantly became hooked on lampwork beads. This class was so much fun - I still do not have a kiln but am planning to get one next year, fingers crossed! Kerry is an excellent teacher and I am excited to be signed up for her class entitled True Colors: Cold-Worked Bezels & Colorful Camouflage!
I pre-ordered her next book, Rustic Wrappings, and am patiently awaiting its delivery in July! The class I signed up for includes a project from this book.
I have to mention that Totally Twisted is also what changed my jewelry designs from basic stringing to include wire - Kerry's book demonstrates how easily it is to enhance any design!

Anyway, the only problem I have with the ArtBliss venue is that I truly want to take ALL of the classes with all of the talented instructors! Alas, unless I am cloned between now and then, 3 will have to do!
Won't you join me?!
Thanks for stopping by today!
