Sunday Workshops with Cindy Forrester

Let me start off by saying, I had THE BEST TIME these last 2 days! So let me get on with the photos to show you. And go to the post before this one for photos from the Saturday workhop.

Two of the ladies I sat with today and Saturday. Martha is closest to the window and that's my friend, Janice Golden working on her baby doll bottle top


Yours truly and Linda Bucci to my left.
Hey Vallen, look - I'm wearing one of your wristlets! I received a lot of compliments on it too. Here's Vallen's etsy shop for those of you that asked - Queenly Things

Barbara and Linda working on their bottles

Cindy talking to us about sterling silver spoons

Jarri with her cool vintage car bottle topper. Hey Jarri - I told you this photo was going to make this blog post! *smiles*

Time out for a lunch break

Karen and Cindy

The beginning stages of my baby headed bottle

The sterling silver bezel and jump ring I made and antiqued. To be filled with resin

Sharon and Jody. Look at the headpiece on that bottle. LOVE IT!

Me shaving (more?) corks for bottles.
Those are 3 additional bottles (2 with finials) that I started and am finishing at home.

Doesn't this pumpkin headed guy look like he's ready to sneak some of those snacks?!

Dede hand-dipped these pretzel sticks at 5:00 in the morning for us!

chocolate dipped Oreos, grapes, cheese . . . great snacks!

my completed sterling silver spoon bracelet

Janice's beautiful sterling silver spoon bracelet with a photo of her mother or grandmother as a child. Janice, I'm sorry I don't remember which one. E-mail me so I can get it right ok?

And right at the end of the day, I had just packed my stuff, pulled my hair back to get ready to head out the door and BAM! there was Dede, grabbing me to take a photo!

So that's it for now folks. I'm going to go get some sleep.

Thank you Cindy for everything you taught us these past two days! It was a pleasure meeting you in person.

We are so glad you were able to join us In The Artist's Studio with Cindy Forrester. Thanks so much for sharing your photos with all of us. Everyone made such great pieces, your bracelet is just beautiful. We can't wait to see what you continue making using the techniques Cindy taught.

You are so cute my dear. I am glad that you had a ball! I feel like I've learned something just by association. LOL Thanks for the links... I am going through them now.

Thanks for all the pictures, they're terrific. I only attended the Saturday workshop (and was a total dummy and didn't take any pictures even though I had my camera with me) so it was really great to see what went on Sunday. Looks like you had just as much fun as we all did on Saturday.

Since we didn't all finish our necklaces Saturday, I wish there was some way for everyone to share how their piece finally turned out when they finished it at home. I think that was the one thing I missed about Saturday's workshop, show and tell at the end of the day. Still, it was loads of fun, I learned a lot, and met some really terrific people!

I swear you do more in a week than most of us get down in 6 months. So happy to follow you on all your jaunts. Thanks for the wristlet plug. You look beautiful in your concentration.
