Technique of the Month Club -

I had a wonderful night creating with these lovely ladies. I LOVE the Technique of the Month Club. As I mentioned in an earlier post, we created a project inspired by Cathe Holden's Wire Nests. Here is the Necklace and Earring Set I created for the girls to try:
Gotta Love it! This was the first time making jewelry for all the girls and I was happy to show them. Cathe's nests are a great introduction to wire wrapping - I just tweaked it a bit so we could make our own "jump rings" and dangle feather bits :) The wire wrapping came in handing when I showed the girls how to create the matching earrings. THEY DID GREAT!!!
The nests are super light weight and are perfect embellishments. Here's the necklace set again beside a bottle I adorned with paper and one of the wire nests. They'd be great for cards too!

There are some ladies who didn't get a chance to join us tonight who would like to do this next Wednesday. If you'd like to join us, let me know. All are welcome and this is so fun and just $10! :)
Have a great night all!! Keep making art!!

Thanks again Karen for a creative evening. I really enjoyed making the necklace and earrings. I am wearing them tomorrow to work with my purple shirt.

I'm not sure I ever glowed this much. How exciting to be a part of such a fun event and project, even if I wasn't there! The results are gorgeous and I'm walking way feeling a bit celebrity-ish, LOL!
