My friend Sandi is the bomb! We try and get together a couple times a year to create - we live in the same metro area, you would think it would be easy - but we both have busy families so time away to create is sometimes hard to fine. Sandi reached out and said that she was going to Bead Fest Philly, and did I want to go. For the first time in YEARS, it worked out schedule wise, so I picked her up last Saturday and off we zoomed. Sandi had connected with another awesome jewelry buddy Sally, and we could all crash in her room. I told you Sandi was the bomb :-)
We ended up taking two classes, one with Eva Sherman where I learned brazing - a way of melting wire together. Eva and I had been Bead Soup partners a couple years ago and I was excited to finally meet her in person. She was a wonderful, warm and gracious teacher!
