Visual Journaling Workshop
SAFE n' Stylin' - a Reflective Design Workshop
I made earrings in my youth and sold them to my friends. My favorite earrings to make were of crocheted wire strung with a few beads. In high school, I took a silver-smithing class taught by my best friend's mother. Silver-smithing was much harder on the hands!
As an adult, I fell in love with working in fun foam and tin cans. It's easy on the hands and the materials are so inexpensive! It's much more about the design process. I have an affinity for the bright colors of the fun foam.
When I work, I like to have several pairs of earrings going at the same time. When I find a look I really like, sometimes I spread the idea to other earrings in progress. I love working with color, shapes and textures to produce a wearable design in a short amount of time!
