Workshop Christi Friessen

I was very fortunate to attend the workshops that Christi Friessen was teaching here in Sydney at 2 bead or not 2 bead at Penrith. I had heard what a fun lady she is and everything I had heard about her was true! A lovely generous woman with an encouraging word for everyone. I think she is a great ambassador for Polymer Clay.
2 bead or not 2 bead is also one of the most beautiful beading shops I have EVER walked into. Congratulations Lenore for stocking some of the most unusual beads I have ever seen.

Here is the Calala Lily we made on the left and my steampunk turtle on the right and above left is the peacock we made.

Bead and Button Show Milwauke USA

I was very fortunate to have the opportunity last week to spend one day at the Bead and utton Show in the USA. I decided to make the most of the day by doing a workshop with the very talented polymer clay artist, Lynne Ann Schwarzenberg.
She is a very talented caner and all round polymer clay artis,I truly have learned so much in the one day that I spent with her,just wish my time at the show could have extended for the whole week!
The photo above is the project that we worked on,one of Lynne's beautiful flower cane pendants.

Here is a photo of my cane being
