Saturday was a very fun day! I participated in Barbara Lewis' "Painting with Fire" workshop hosted by Cindy Wimmer and Jeanette Blix . Wow, what a day! Barbara was a great teacher...very generous. Her hubby, Jim was right by her side, helping with everything...what a team:) Cindy and Jeanette were the best hosts...not only did they plan and coordinate the whole event, but there was a yummy coffee cake, cute little bags of Hershey's kisses at each station, and a great lunch spread. Jeanette brought a bunch of goodies from her shop fundametals.net ...I snagged some cool copper blanks and some more copper washers. I also got a couple colors of enamel and some other beads from Barbara to give this a shot at home...just have to go get a bigger torch :)
It was very cool to meet several artists whose blogs I read...not only Cindy and Jeanette, but there was Lori from Pretty Things, Sue from SueBeads, and a bunch of other really nice folks! I think everyone else fell in love with enameling as much as I did.
I will update with photos of my beads that I made as soon as I can...in the meantime, go look at Cindy's blog post and you will even see a photo of yours truly...a little disheveled and open-mouthed as I am concentrating on that bead!
