Earrings Workshop and Public Lecture in Tucson

Next weekend I am teaching a workshop on Earrings down in Tucson.  We will spend two full days exploring the ins and outs of all different types of earring findings from traditional fishhooks to hinged loops. Styles of earwires covered include several variations of traditional fishhooks, kidney wires, posts, hinged hoops, forged hoops, swing hoops, extended earwires, and more.  I am really excited about this workshop because there really is SO MUCH you can do just with simple earrings!!  And its in my hometown, which is great.  I love having excuses to go home (and Eegees!!) :)

Unfortunately, the workshop sold out pretty quickly so there are no open spots left, but...

I will also be presenting a "FREE and Open to the Public" lecture entitled "Invented Heirlooms".   The lecture will be held on Friday, October 12th from 7:00-8:30pm at the Randolph Center Photo Lecture Room, Bldg #2, 200 S Alvernon Way, Tucson, AZ 85711.  
If you are in Tucson, I would love to see you there.  Talking in front of a crowd is scary but its less scary with friendly faces in the audience!!

The weeks and days are rushing by so fast...faster than EVER.  I am so busy teaching this semester I have yet to find balance.  My little girl grows bigger and more beautiful every day, while all I can do is watch and hope that each and every day she knows that she is loved.  My baby is gone and a child has taken her place.
Like I said, this semester is a little crazy with how much I am teaching.  But its good.  I love my job.  Truly I feel so blessed to be able to do what I love.  I know how lucky I am.  
That's all for now, just wanted to let you all know that I am still here:)
