My wife, Diane and I had the opportunity to attend the Metal Clay Artist Symposium 15-18 September in Winston-Salem North Carolina. We both had a great time! Diane took stackable ring classes with Barbara Becker Simon, and I took a Champleve / Cloisonné class with Pam East, who is a great teacher. Pictured is the pendant I made with Pam’s guidance…perfect it is not; some of my ovals are a little funky, but cloisonné wire can be challenging as a beginner. Overall, I am happy with the pendant, Diane is happy to have a new piece of jewelry and I learned a LOT from Pam. If you ever get a chance to take one of her classes, do it! It is lots of fun and she is open and free with all of her knowledge. Thanks, Pam!
