Wonderful Class With Andrea
I just wanted to share what a wonderful time I had in a bead making class this weekend at Arrow Springs with the talented and friendly Andrea Guarino. Wow. She was warm, profuse with information and helpful feedback, and my head is swimming with everything she taught us. We used glass powders, learned how to fume and make her fabulous "moth wing" bead, her off mandrel heart, the stargazer bead, the galaxy bead, salmon egg bead, and many more.
All in all, it was a mind-expanding, incredibly glassy weekend, and my neurons are a-buzzing with excitement. Can you believe the blues, lavenders and greens in the ivory? Holy crap!
Thanks, Andrea for a very memorable experience. It was a total pleasure meeting you, and I hope I get to take a class with you again sometime.
And thanks to Craig and Donna and the team at Arrow Springs for tending to our every need, as usual. It's always fun coming to your place, even if I did have to carry my wallet home on a stretcher.
