Happy Thanksgiving.

Wishing all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving.

I am back to blogging and creating new jewelry.  Look for new posts and pics coming in the next few weeks.  Will get back in full swing after the holidays. So sorry I have not posted in such a long time.  What can I say, life happens.

I leave you with this collage of some of my work.  The background is a hand painted silk scarf I designed with butterflies, a pair of black and blue handmade (lampwork) beaded earrings, and a black, red and white memory wire bracelet with a handmade (lampwork) black, red and white focal bead.

Wishing each and every one of you a blessed holiday season.  Christina

Classes I Teach: Silk Painting

Have you ever wanted to learn to paint on silk.  This is a very fun class. 

SILK PAINTING:  Paint on 100% silk.  In this class you will learn how to stretch your silk onto a frame for painting and how to paint on the silk.  You will learn different methods of creating designs on silk, how to heat set the dyes making them color fast, and about different resists.  $135.00, includes all supplies (silks, paints, brushes and the use of stretcher frames). This is a 3 secession class, each class secession is 5 hours long.  The class is limited to two students.  You will take home two or three completed silks.

Classes are available by appointment only:

Due to limited space available for teaching, my Classes are limited to 1, 2 or 3 students per class depending on the class.  This makes my classes very individualized providing you the one-on-one instruction that you will not receive in a larger class setting.  This also allows me to be flexible in my teaching schedule.

Classes are generally weekday evenings, or Saturday during the day or evenings.  I can also work with you to fit your class around your schedule.  I can arrange a weekday afternoon class if that is the only time you have available.  I thoroughly love teaching, so click here to see a list of other classes I teach: http://creationsbychristina.net/?page_id=913
