NEW Workshop: Green Heart of Envy Necklace

I apologize for the poor quality of this photo, but I took it in Monica's store under some bad lighting using my iPhone! This is the sample "Green Heart of Envy" necklace displayed near my high-fired porcelain pendants that are still on sale in the shop, through the end of January. About half of the pendants have been sold, so make sure you get to the store before they're all gone...
On Sunday, I'm teaching a workshop from 10 am to 4 pm that features my pendants; it's called the Green Heart of Envy necklace workshop and I think it's pretty terrific. One caveat: Unless you're very experienced with wire working, you will NOT finish this necklace in class. If you're the type of student who absolutely must finish her necklace during class-time, please, do NOT sign up for this one.
If, on the other hand, you're a student who's seeking new wire working techniques and skills and your main objective is to learn, not necessarily finish a jewelry piece, then you will love this class! Here are some techniques we'll cover:
• Celtic knot link made with 16ga wire
• Knotless netting on a pendant bead
• Coil-wrapped beads
• Double-wrapped eye-pin loops
• Coiled, single-wrapped eye-pin loops
• My signature "Twining Vines" technique
• Handmade chain links
Whew! That's a lot of learning for one day, so this class is rather intensive. Thus, the prediction that virtually no one will finish a necklace in class! Just being honest.
We already have several ambitious students signed up for the class on Sunday, but we have room for a couple more. If you're up for the challenge, you can sign up on Monica's web site or call the store:

Happy wrapping,
