The crocheted wire jewelry workshops thing has turned into a wonderful experience, who could have guessed...
I've been refusing to teaching for such a long time , if i only knew how much i will enjoy it i would have started earlier.
I opened this week for registration a new beginners workshop that will take place on Mid February and hope I will have nice participants as I had on the previous ones....
the ladies brought such good energies to my little studio that I should thank them for that. here are some photos, Im not in them since I'm the photographer.....
good excuse ;)

December is the best month ever, no need to explain why, right ?
well, beside everything you may imagine its also my birthday... this year I made a special request for my birthday present (which i usually dont - i love surprises).
So - I'm know the proud owner of a cute video camera that goes anywhere with me.
The main reason i so much wanted it was so I can start publishing video tutorials of my designs, I know some of you are eagerly waiting for this...
The first tut is already on the way, I filmed most of it (wasn't easy... there is still a lot to learn), started editing which is a tricky part by itself.
I still have to film the intro and add narration since im not sure what i said during the shoots is the best.
The obstacles I'm still facing are how to deliver the goods, i can post it by mail on a cd but would much prefer to deliver a link for download. Both because of the green aspect and the immediate delivery.
I'm exploring several options but haven't yet focused on a winning solution,
so any advise is welcome (I can incorporate it either on my wordpress site or this blog).
HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone !

My 2 crocheted wire jewelry workshops are starting in a couple of days, the first on Friday and the second on Tuesday the following week. This is a great opportunity for some face lifting to the Studio.
My sweet hubby built me a nice large and white wooden table that we will enjoy sitting around, the beaten bookcases got a new white wash, they look so much better !
and the best thing is that we got rid of so much junk we accumulated, I'm sure this will improve the Studios Feng shuei energies:)
I started preparing kits to accompany thy workshop for the girls, it feels like making Birthday surprise bags... LOL !
Promise to keep on updating....

In my view there isn't a better way to pass the holidays then the desert....
we made it a habit in the last couple of years to pack lightly and spend a couple of days in this incredible silence.
We like staying in farms, where you get max privacy, min noise and great comfort. This time we stayed in a place called Karmei Ovdat , a vineyard farm between Sde Boker and Mizped Boker.
We practically did nothing other then stare at the incredible views and dip in the special garden pools they built there.
It made me think it could be great going there for a couple of day just me and my wires....

Happy new year everyone ! I'm going to the desert to relax for a couple of days and great the year to come... I promise to share some pictures when I'm back.
I'm not taking any wire nor hooks.... just my sketch book :)
SHANA TOVA ! שנה טובה ומבורכת

Do you know the feeling that suddenly the world is exploding of something that just got into your notion ? like when you are pregnant and suddenly you see so many pregnant woman that you wonder weather its the latest trend ...
This is how I feel about loops, hoops & bangles, up until I started exploring this shape I didn't give it much attention, I have a memory somewhere in the back of my mind that I had a pair of small silver hoops when I was a teen , but ever since then NADA/Niente/Rien ! did it just come back into fashion or was it always there and it was me that was away ..... ?
Anyway ever since it burst into my notion I became an addict, not only that I have now hoop earrings in 5 sizes giant, jumbo, large, medium and mini size. I also have bangles , in gold , in silver, in oxidized silver and in many bright colors such as red, orange, green and more.....
if you are crafty you are welcome to make it yourself , check my crocheted wire jewelry tutorials section on my etsy shop
