Re-discovering my natural creativity allowed me to look inward, enabling me to filter my world from my emotions and perceptions. This is who I am now. My art consist of mixed media and making jewelry from vintage finds. I love decorating my home, gardening, photography, journaling, traveling and working in my art studio. Most importantly is making time for my family and friends, that make my life good.
Here is a brief overview of Spellbound that I attended last November, I have had several request to show more info and pics on the event.
Some of my friends wanted me to post more about Spellbound that I attended in November of last year. It was hosted by Debbie Murray & her daughter, Shea Fragos, the mother/daughter design team behind the Gilded Life. They are know for their exquisite art events and retreats.
Spellbound was an incredible, long weekend event in Pasadena, California at the historic Langham Hotel. It is an amazing art retreat with some of the countries most talented artist teaching classes.
The opening dinner, under that gilded ceiling and massive chandelier we were given a handmade velvet and organza flower to wear, a stunning hand made bag full of crafting supplies and tools and books and goodies that would be overwhelming to any of us.
It was a huge moment for me meeting Kristen Robinson and taking her classes. I had taken an online class from her a year before. She is a fabulous teacher and a beautiful soul. She is so generous sharing her skills and wanting everyone in her classes to create a finished product.
JoAnnA Pierotti class offered a new technique in soldering and gave me confidence to make jewelry again that needed to be soldered.
Debrina Pratt, has been an artist that I adored her minature works of art, had purchased some of it in the past and tried my own hand at this. She opened up many new ideas on how to do this.
As you can see it was a wonderful event, but its a new year and new events to attend...so time to move one!
