Jersey's Goin Urban !! .....

What does that mean you ask? ... The bestest most funnest trip EVER !! I'll be heading to Southern California next week to teach a jewelry class at the ultra hip Urban Barn in Escondido ...yes, the planets lined up correctly over the past day or two for this to work out perfectly and now, if, your schedule {and planets} will just do the same ... I hope to see you {some of my West Coast blogging peeps} in class!!

I'll be bringing loads of found treasures with me ... you'll be able to pick and choose vintage elements to incorporate into your design with the main focus placed on a soldered china tile pendant, 
also picked by you.
We'll learn how to bring it all together creating a stunning, 
one-of-a-kind, piece of jewelry!!
You will then have the opportunity to purchase "take and make" kits and supplies to take home with you in order to continue on 
a journey of creating.

This class is geared for all levels, especially the beginner, everyone will make and take home a necklace! 

I am so looking forward to this event ... I truly hope we have the chance to meet and work on this project together !!
