pieces are easy to make as necklaces or ornaments. In this class I will show you techniques to make your very own adorable Altered Art Bottle pendants into necklaces or ornaments. The techniques I cover can be applied to several jewelry applications and you’ll be amazed at how fun these are to make!
This class has two types of altered art bottle necklaces and variations in between and we will go over all my secrets. One has a crown topper and the other has a doll head but that’s not all I’ll show you. I’ll show you how to assemble both types and more!
Who is this course for?
All levels of creative beings’ are welcome. This is a great class to start you on your way to making one of a kind jewelry. It’s also an eye opener for experienced jewelry makers wanting to infuse a little bohemian vibe into their work and loosen up.
Who this course is not for:
I really believe in eternal learning so I think this course is for everyone. You will never know everything about your craft even if you’ve been making jewelry forever. There is always more to learn and with an open mind and genuine hunger for new techniques, what do you have to loose except maybe new ideas for designs and an edge on your competition?

More importantly, they are FUN to make and each one can be completely different with a little imagination and help from me.

All the mistakes I’ve made in my 20 plus years of jewelry making are your victory. Meaning you probably won’t make the same mistakes I did because I’ll show you how to avoid them. Even if you do make mistakes I’ll show you how to make it pretty!
I eat, live and breath my craft, every day. Decades of accumulated knowledge, teaching and making. It’s what I do and now I’m going to show you that you can do it too.
Creating art and teaching creativity is a way of life for me and has been my main source of joy and income for many years. My mother made clothes for my sister and I growing up and I couldn't wait for her to show me how....I was 5. With small bits of fabric and buttons, I made clothes, bedding, jewelry, houses and other things for my dolls and I haven't stopped creating from that point on. I have no formal education in the arts but have always taken classes and read books to further my knowledge to make anything I put my mind to from soldering, mosaics, painting, jewelry, book making, clothing, tassels, crowns, crochet, macrame, knitting and so much more.
So I guess you could say my education has been my curiosity to learn from living a creative life and the adventures I have traveled to get there.
Over the years I've taught hundreds of classes in venues at large National art retreats to cozy home gatherings.
Online classes are a great way to reach those who cannot travel to my classes and I am so thrilled to have a platform that has opened that door.
