It was fun seeing the other teachers and their stunning jewelry. If you're interested in signing up for a workshop held at BBW this July-September, signups begin June 20.
One of the fun classes I taught on Saturday was the Chunky Leaf Bracelet, which can be made with either sterling silver or copper wire. Amazing how beautiful a piece of jewelry made with cheap copper wire can be--especially if you artificially age it in liver of sulfur, as we did in class. If you'd like to learn how to make the bracelet yourself, it's just one of four bracelets demonstrated in close-up detail on my latest DVD, Ethnic Style Jewelry Workshop. You'll also learn two of my most popular necklace designs and a variety of techniques for working with wire and found objects.
