Perfect Time for a Hike in Ohio!!

My very favorite fall destination in Ohio is Hocking Hills State Park. I went for a hike and to take some pictures of the spectacular fall leaves. Here's a glimpse!

Just Discovered Something Cool...

Bead Trends magazine is a fairly new publication all about making jewerly. The magazine is great, but is fairly pricey (I think $17.95 per issue).

You can go online and pay only $4.95 per issue to download an e-copy. I've just downloaded the November 2009 issue, and it's very user-friendly, let's you zoom in very easily and is full of designs! Being a jewelry magazine junkie myself, thought I'd pass this on to anyone else who enjoys all of the beading magazines! Here's the link:

Workshop with Connie Fox

I was so lucky to have attended a workshop in Ohio with Connie Fox yesterday! I learned so many cool new techniques! We colored and stamped anodised aluminum, then wire and tube riveted the pieces to textured sterling silver links. What a blast! My head is spinning with new ideas, adding some color to metal. If you ever have the chance to take a class from Connie, do it!! She's a FABulous teacher, and the most wonderful person! You will learn so much!
