Native American Jewelry Workshop

We had such a great time at the "Sisters Weekend Workshop" this past Saturday! The sisters had a Native American theme for their weekend together. They have a yearly tradition to spend time together with a mutually chosen theme and some set criteria. Having fun, seeing new sights, learning and expanding their skills are the few that stood out for me. Learning a skill was where I came in and I feel very honored to be a part  their special weekend. They both had this strong want to have a keep sake record for their families to share great tradition. The way that we did this was by creating a disc with the date and their names on them as part of their incredible pieces seen above. We gathered natural items and some traditional Native American materials to work with and just let our imaginations go. I taught them many new jewelry skills coupled with working together on the design. I am so very proud of them for their amazing results.
Thank You for the experience ladies! I feel very inspired and honored!

Mix & Match Charms and Chains

I have designed and created a line of jewelry for everyone "Mix & Match Charms and Chains" has really taken off. This line enables you to create your own jewelry pieces in your length, color and of course your own unique style. From large bold statement pieces to trendy everyday wear. The charms come in a large variety for everybodies taste. "Vintage Romantic" with angels, hearts and antique keys. "International" with Chinese Blessings, Incan images and Fleur De Lis. "Style Trends" with silver keys, star fish, anchors, locks, birds, and owls to name a few. "Industrial Edge" with light bulbs, tags, typewriter keys, and dice."Kids Rock" has butterflies, hearts, suns, bees, animals, peace signs, flowers and so much more in all the categories. I introduced this concept a few years ago and it has gotten better each year thanks to my customers and friends. I just got in a new lot of charms this week so your welcome to come and check them out at the center gallery or just hang out with us. Scala Art Center A Place for Art & Fun! Thanks Lisa Scala
