Jewelry making day

We had some health concerns lately in our family and I was not able to pay attention to my blog as much as I would like to but I was missing you guys! I have started several posts and did not finish them... I hate to be in a such blank mood!

Well, turned out everything is not as bad as we thought, so we relaxed a little and now I am desperate for a creative spree! Last Saturday we grabbed all of our jewelry supplies and went to see Albina (aroundbeads) to get her wise advise on what to do with all this stuff.

That was fun! Albina knows everything, I am telling you! She is a perfect teacher and if you get a chance to take one of her classes, take it. If you are serious about jewelry making it will be money well invested.

We made 4 necklaces and 3 pairs of earrings together.

We used some handmade lampwork beads my husband made some years ago, some pearls, sterling silver charms and sterling wire.

I love everything we made.
I especially like the picture stone we wrapped in silver wire in a shape of tree... so cute!

It was a very nice day and we felt great about ourselves. Thank you, Albina, for teaching us and also for making us feel this way!

Wonderful story! Albina is a master, love her work. I wish I lived closer to her, because I have lots of stuff too, and I don't know what to do with it...
