Marcia deCoster's Workshop

Here is Marcia DeCoster and myself at her workshop on Sunday last.
It was fantastic meeting Marcia and hearing about her journey in jewellery making. I had lots of questions to ask on teaching and future directions, which Marcia willingly shared. I am most grateful.
I am also absolutely gob-smacked seeing her jewellery in person. OMG Magnificent work. I came home feeling like an rank amateur. Oh well, there will always be someone out there that challenges your opinions on your own designs.

'Dragon's Bane' - Awarded First Place

"Dragon's Bane" - Awarded First Place, Elly Feldman Awards, Melbourne Bead Expo - November 2010

Whilst making this necklace I kept thinking on how Dragons are depicted with spikey bits around their head and tail in movies and in books. Thus the name.

Look at this Beauty

Look at this beautiful succulent. I have had this for many years and it never ceases to amaze me when it is in full bloom. I have this growing in my garden and have brought it up on my deck to enjoy it whilst in bloom.
WOW !!
