Summer is here! I am still pretty tired from Bead and Button. It seems like I was going non-stop for 10 straight days... Totally worth every minute though!
Whit came home with a new hammock for me today.... this is where I plan on getting some much needed R & R!
I am looking forward to this summer. I have nothing planned that I "have" to do for a month and a half! Lots of time will be spent in my studio just exploring some new techniques and ideas in glass and silver. I am going to take some silversmithing classes this summer with some friends and will be learning some new techniques. I am really looking forward to extending my skills. I have some great ideas for some steam punk jewelry. Looks like I will have Whit and Jim Moore busy designing me some new tools! So many things I want to learn!
Later in the summer I will be going to Australia to teach. The classes are being held in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Hobart. I feel so blessed that my art allows me to see so much of the world. I was in Australia in 1995 and am really looking forward to seeing some new places that I haven't been. I love meeting new people and making new friends all over the world.
Last time I was in Australia I went to Ayers rock (Uluru),
what an incredible place. I won't be going there this time around... but hopefully on another trip I will visit it again!
I am hoping to see some of these and other amazing animals on this trip!
Well that's it for this update... I will keep you posted on things as they progress! Have a great weekend and Father's Day!
