WANTED - New Students

I have been teaching a core group of ladies for some ten months now and their skills have grown enormously -   as one would hope.
I am now looking for more students - beginner or intermediate - wanting to increase their weaving skills and finishing off skills to give their work that professional look.
One of my students is already selling her work in a gallery, alongside myself - Flourish Arts, Birchgrove, and others won't be far behind.
These ladies enjoy their time together and get as much out of the teaching as the gathering. So if there are any ladies and/or men out there wanting to learn more and gain more from their passion, please get in contact with me through the email form below right.

Here is a pendant made of Czech green iris seed beads and Crystals inspired by the Vintage lace necklaces I have been making. Again I have come up with an original pattern, never to be repeated. 
This has a twelve point star centre - symbolic of the twelve tribes of Israel and/or the twelve Apostles. I like the "chain" I have designed to hang it from, I think it ties in well. The necklace measures 49cm end to end and the pendant is 5cm across. Being all green this would be a great necklace to wear on St. Pat's day for sure, for sure.

Vintage Crystal Lace

 Recently I created a Vintage Lace necklace which sold within a week of making it - see post below. Here is another necklace I have created using crystals of varying sizes and shapes. I call this Vintage Crystal lace. This necklace comes with 1 Swarovski drop, 6 x 7mm Czech Crystal drops, 36 x 5mm Bicones and 28 x 4mm crystals. It sparkles with joy. Very elegant, a classic that will never date. The necklace also comes with an extension "chain"'. The necklace measures 44cm from end to end and extends to 50cm. When wearing the smaller length the extension dangles elegantly from the neckline. I really enjoy making these varying designs and attempt to never repeat a centre feature pattern, each need to be different as there is nothing worse than finding some other lady in the room wearing your necklace. How awful!!!
