My Reliquary Collection 2012

I am so happy to share with you all about this new project I am working on this year. I started drawing reliquary designs a while ago but it was until now that I started to make them.

I can honestly tell you that the time I have spent making them has been a great journey. I only draw a small idea in paper but the actual finished project comes alive while I am working with it. I design following my heart and most of the time ideas just flow in the moment.

I have spent whole nights working but very happy !!!

Here I will show you my first finished necklace in this new collection.

This is my first time teaching in this area and I am very happy to go there and share my passion for working with metal clay.

If you live in the area, I will love to meet you and have you in my class.

A wonderful get together with friends

I just had a wonderful long weekend with three incredible friends and artists. After all I have been this last year I was very eager to have this play time with them.

Lora Hart came to visit us from California, her first stop was in Austin where Vickie Hallmark lives, I met with them the following day and we sure had a super great time.

Vickie's home is beautiful and her studios and her where very inspirational. As soon as I got into her home I got into action and joined Lora in the enameling adventure.

We tried to get a picture with all of us together but it was not an easy task,
as you can see in these images.

We sure laughed  a lot trying to get one decent image!

Enameling was super fun, Vickie showed us how to enamel with a torch and use enamel paintings. It was incredible to see how easy and fast you can be able to add so much color and at the same time draw with enamels.

These are the pieces I painted with enamels, I sure know I have lots to practice still but to consider we made them in such a short period of time, I am happy with them.

Yes, I had to add lots of color.
It is impossible for me to be plain.

These are very small and I have no clue
how I was able to draw in such a small area.
That is my finger holding one of them!

Vickie also showed us how to make an inspirational book.
Vickie Hallmark, our teacher !
Lora Hart busy working.

Ready to start drawing !

Our next adventure was in San Antonio, I took them to some great galleries in the city and one of our fist stops was Equinox Gallery where we met the wonderful Laura Wood.

Laura came home to watch the Oscars with us and also to talked with us about her paper work and how she makes it.
Thanks Laura for sharing this with us !!

My husband was very happy to cook for us all.

Thanks my dear husband for the yummy food
you made for us ! ♥

Thank you Lora for coming to Texas to visit us, it was great to see you again and to see you create with us !! You are a talented Lady !! ♥
Thanks to Vickie and Laura for sharing your talent and for the laughter !! ♥
