Egyptian Collar Necklace

Egyptian Collar Necklace

Winter is such an interesting season: days growing longer, my orchid blooming, my kids at school making great art, Warriors are rolling along in great basketball strides AND Pitchers and Catchers report in 5 weeks for Giants baseball.  

Starting fresh with the coming year, January gets things done: loads of new designs are flowing and I can't wait for you to see them.  January also has the Women's March. It was especially great to see young women all over the country standing up for their place in this country. Strong voices, and real concerns. The Bay Area marches were great, glad to participate in San Francisco.

Kids at school making art, we are working on beautiful Egyptian collar necklaces.  I am always amazed at their fearlessness when we start new projects. The are so capable and enthusiastic as they learn new jewelry techniques. I learn something new every week. Our projects are JEWELRY OF THE ANTIQUITIES: Egyptian, Roman, Mesopotamian, Greek, Irish and African designs. Simple and intricate, the students make all their own parts, as if they were using tools available thousands of years ago.  I love this group!

I hope you are doing things that inspire you. It makes life richer.  Denise
