Thank you very much for responding to my interest. I have a jewelry show coming up in nov and am busy as all get out at the moment. I hope to do work with metal clay after this year ends because my scheduel frees up considerably. Will you keep me posted on the workshops in the new year please. Jody

Hi Shannon, yes it was too bad that you had to miss doing the show this year. We had a terrific turnout none the less. I am still letting all the participants know the results.
The opening reception on the 23rd of April if you can make it in.
Hope the Newfoundland workshop went well.

Best,
Cheryl
