Tucson 2011

A week ago I came back from Tucson where I was teaching jewelry making classes. I am a teacher in the third generation, so I  really enjoy this work. While teaching in Tucson, I caught myself at calling my adult student "kids" :)
I had 24 kids students this year , so  I got 24 new friends from all over the world.
To make long story shorter, I'll show you pictures (I am a bad writer, by the way).
This is a really international class: Catherine from Australia, Ida from Colombia, and me- from Russia:)

Mary and Terry took more then one class and got a special gift:)
Terry with just finished Woven Wire Bangle
Pat made really beautiful pendant!

While Michael is taking my Catch a Gem class, his wife is taking another class behind me. What a family fun!
I was teaching next door table to my friend Dale 'Cougar' Armstrong.
Walk-ins welcome, so Ken took my class and made a nice pendant!
Beside classes, I participated in international exhibit  "One of a kind" with my wire works.
 I had almost no time for shopping, but I found a couple hours to spend with my husband and daughter (they came in the morning from Mesa) looking at rocks, gems, tools and other stuff :) . 
Unfortunately,  I made not many pictures of my classes this year. If you, my friends, have some pictures to share, I would really appreciate :)

  1. Thank you for the nice write-up. I enjoyed your class and my friends loved the cuff earring you taught me to make. See you next year.

  2. Thank you, Elsie, for your nice comment! See you next year!

  3. Hi Albina. I enjoyed the class so much that I will have to take more than one next year! I was looking for a way to display the cuff earrings and found that a ring display works quite well. I'm looking forward to your book. Thanks.

  4. What a great idea! Thank you Rebecca!
    I sent your book this morning.
