Magic of fire

What is MAGICAL,
 about FIRE, 
in making jewelry?

When you add a flame to your skills in making jewelry, it opens up a world of possibilities.

But do you know which torch to choose for your needs?

Is a micro butane torch enough?

Do you need MAPP gas, or mixed gases for your projects?

I am so excited to be bringing you a workshop, OVERCOMING THE FEAR OF FIRE with Artful Gathering, that will hopefully answer all these, and more, questions.

Artful Gathering is an all, online workshop.  
Registration is open now, and the workshop doesn't start until July 15, for six weeks.  I will be available on line to answer any questions you have, and help in any way I can.

So check it out!
Take the plunge!
Isn't it time to introduce soldering into your skills?

Fire is good!!

love and hugs,

in Anacortes, WA
on June 16th
(includes kit)

I'm so excited about this!  Come play with us if you can.  The class is filling up fast I'm happy to report.  The setting is a lovely seaside village called Anacortes, in the Pacific Northwest, north of Seattle by an hour and a half.  It is a charming quaint little town with fabulous restaurants.  It has an amazingly beautiful historic hotel there called The Majestic Inn and Spa!  I stay there every year when I participate in the annual Anacortes Art Festival, a fabulous juried art show.

So Elisabeth, from Elisabeth's Cottage by the Sea, contacted me and asked if I could come on over the pond, since I have to take a ferry ride off my island to get there, and teach a workshop?  Well heck yes!  This is in my neck of the woods, so I jumped at the opportunity.

There are a limited supply of seats, so don't wait long to sign up.  There are a few of my Artful Gathering students already registered, so I get to meet them in person, and would love to meet you too!

This pendant is so much fun to make.  If you don't know how to solder with a butane torch yet, this is a great place to start.  All levels are welcome, and if you already know how, I will also show you how to attach rhinestone chain with a torch. Fun, fun!

Check out the printable flyer on my sidebar for more details, the skills you will learn and the materials/tools list.

Please let me know if you have any questions, or feel free to contact Elisabeth at 

Have a fabulous week!
