I am so excited to share with you that I have another upcoming workshop scheduled for Saturday, June 21st from 10:30-2:30pm at Craft Fusion, 2986 N Alma School Suite 4
Chandler, AZ 85224, 480-821-3758
.  The workshop is called  "Message in a Bottle Necklace and Earrings (with Metal Stamping)".  Here are some of the details:

I'm sure that many of you have you seen the darling Bottles with a Message in them that are made into Necklaces.  Well, they are so much fun to make, and the sky is the limit on what you can do with them.  So I decided to teach this fun and informative workshop where we will take a small bottle and fill it with the message of your choice: perhaps a dream or a goal you have, a prayer, or some secret hope that you don't want to share with anyone else. We will use an Aging Technique on the message to make it look rustic and old, and then we will add accents like charms, beads, glitter and vintage lace or ribbon to it. We will learn a Wire-Wrapping technique, and we will also make a charm using Metal Stamping, and you can choose to stamp whatever words or phrase you like on the charm! You will also have the chance to make a pair of earrings to match your necklace, also using the Metal Stamping Technique.  Here are a few pictures of examples of what we will be making:
