March 22 Wild Wire Women retreat FULL

We recently had some snowfall—the first of 2012—and it was gorgeous while it lasted, but most of the snow on my property has already melted. The days continue to be warmer than usual for this time of year, with lots of sunshine and beauty all around.
So I'm thrilled to have completely filled my first "Wild Wire Women" workshop retreat for this year, to be held March 22-26. I have five ladies registered, and I decided not to take any more signups because we're doing some enameling with both the torch and kiln. I wanted to be sure that we have lots of elbow room in class, and enameling takes up space! In addition, we'll be etching metal pieces (and/or cuffs) and making big fold-formed copper cuffs with lots of texture, too.
And that still leaves room in the schedule for some wirework and jewelry photography. Whew! It's going to be a very busy weekend retreat, to say the least. You can follow us by viewing the blog here on March 22-26, and if I have the energy I will post photos every day of our progress. I'm excited to welcome five ladies from different parts of the country for a fabulous time making jewelry in the mountains.
Spring is a terrific season to visit Idyllwild; daytime temps are mild with cool evenings, little chance of snow, and lots of wildflowers and baby animals to watch! I love it. If you'd like to join me for an upcoming Wild Wire Women retreat, here are the available dates in 2012:
