Just before we departed for the airport, I was able to shoot a few photos of my students' jewelry. Here is a beautiful collection made by Audrey (above)...
And these beautiful pieces were made by Corinne (above).I was very taken with Martha's creative fibula pin (above). Beautiful!
Once in Nice, I had the afternoon to explore. So I took a taxi from my hotel to "old town," a bit disappointing really, rather touristy but OK. Since I'd had enough shopping, I decided to walk back to my hotel. Here's a shot of a building facade taken along the way... they aren't all this beautiful, but some of the buildings are quite striking.
It took an hour and a half for me to walk (briskly, I might add) to my hotel, which I reached just before dark. The exercise felt very good! But I was a little bit sad at the thought that I would be leaving my beloved France so soon.
I know that I will return someday. Until then, all I can do is say THANK YOU again to dear Anna Horn, my generous hostess in Provence, and look forward to my next adventure in Europe. In fact, I will be teaching a workshop series in Cortona, Italy Sept. 1-11, 2010. If you are interested in joining my group of student travelers, click here for more information.
