My Adventure Ends as Another Begins

I belong to a wonderful group "Artists of the Round Table... A.R.T. for short".

I've just finished my first online workshop "Bead on a Wire", aka; BOW. The workshop was based on Sharilyn Miller's book "Bead on a Wire". This proved to be a terrific learning experience for me, I really enjoyed the workshop and this learning format. We had a week to complete each lesson, 15 lessons in total, and a few breaks in between.

So I decided to take the next online A.R.T. workshop "Making Wire Jewelry", aka; MWJ. This workshop is based on the book "Making Wire Jewelry 60 Easy Projects in Silver, Copper & Brass by Helen Clegg & Mary Larom. This will be 16 weeks...

So as one adventure ends, another begins....

I Just Love Swaps!

This is the second charm swap that I have participated in this year with my Wire Wrap Jewelry Group. The theme for the swap was Summer/Patriotic. I just love the excitement of receiving all the charms in the mail, and seeing all the prettiest.

I chose “Summer” as my theme and used my Watermelon Tourmaline roundelles to form the center dangle, surrounded by my silver hammered wire.

I hope one day to have a lovely bracelet filled with all the charms from all my swap buddies.
