It's hard to believe that the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show is just a mere four weeks away! I wasn't planning on going this year, but received an opportunity from Swarovski Elements to teach two Sparkling Make and Take projects. The make and takes are not pictured yet on their website, but hopefully they will be soon. If you are making the trek to Tucson this year and want to learn a quick technique (sessions are one hour long) using our favorite crystals by Swarovski, check it out. The cost of each session is $10 which includes all the materials necessary to complete your sparkling project. There is a catch, however, you are limited to a maximum of three Make and Take sessions!
I will be meeting up with my BFF, Marcia, who is driving in from San Diego. It's a great place to meet up with your creative sisters while oohing and aahing over a city-full of stone, glass, hand-mades, crystals all sorts of wonderful things to spark your imagination and creativity. I look forward to meeting up with Tracy and Janice of Wired Arts. Two gals that together cover the realm of wire and metal in beautiful, artistic pieces that they teach all over the US and Europe.
