WOW!!! That is all I can say about the amazing weekend Dana and I had. We flew up to Portland on Friday to take a 2 day studio class with Sally Jean Alexander. She is an amazing artist that does the most incredible pieces I have ever seen. She is a pro with the soldering iron, and was very generous with the secrets to great technique. We learned so much. We took the "Totally Tiara" class, and spent 2 full days creating artwork, soldering glass and embellishing our tiara creations. The talent in this class was amazing and Sally Jean was so humble, and gracious, and showed us so much hospitality. Meaning she let us crash her studio for 6 hours after our class was over! What a gal!!! Definitely check her out at http://www.sallyjean.com/
Here is my completed tiara. It was finished in class, however, we had a casualty getting through security at the airport, so I had a little repair work to do when I got home. I am now in search of a half mannequin that I can alter and use for displaying the crown. Off to Ebay!
