2011 Retreat Swap: Bracelets

Our Bernie is the idea lady. She always has a fun project for our retreat weekend. This year she did the prep work for us, making 20+ bracelets out of a strip of rainbow-colored computer wire. All we had to do was create a decorative accent piece to embellish the bracelet. See a few samples below...
Here's a good tip...we glued cured clay to plastic coated wire with Loctite® Vinyl, Fabric & Plastic Flexible Adhesive glue. Bernie says it will hold and it certainly seems to be very firmly attached.

Check out several of the swap bracelets...

Happy Fall and Welcome Back!

We just returned from our 2011 retreat. We gave a few demos, did a bracelet swap, raised a few bucks with a Chinese auction and silent bid auction. The weekend always goes too fast but we've already chosen the date for next year. It will be in October next this blog for more details.

We all managed to look very photogenic in our group shot. Check out this fine gang!

Our next clay day is October 16. As usual, it's the 3rd Sunday. You're invited!
