After being on the waiting list for months...and months, ( my fault really! ). I got the fabulous call from Crystal Creations ( Thank you Glenda ! ) saying that a seat was available for Sherry Serafini's " Shibori Elegance " class on Monday and was I interested? Interested? Oh heck yeah, and a vacation day was scheduled.
It would be the first time I incorporated Fabric ( Shibori Ribbon ) and Bead Embroidery and I was
just " jumping with joy ". Kits were still available so I just brought the good stuff and as always, I was more than prepared. Off I went, got there plenty early, pickup the kit ( great colorway ) and was grinning from ear to ear. I got the biggest hug from Ms. Sherry even though she was disappointed I
wouldn't be attending Bead and Button for her Master Class. I was just thrilled to be taking a class with her.
Last year she had on the Steve Tyler piece with Skulls....this year she had the most amazing Cross and Rosary chain.... ( yes, I'll be inspired to make one of those ). It was of course an inspiring class as always.
I really wanted to work with Fiber and Beading and just fell in love with a Fiber piece she had last year in
velvet and a 24mm Swarovski Centerpiece on a wooden ring. Yes, inspired.

I sat across from another very accomplished artist " Rene Gibson" who actually beads skulls. She was surprised that I knew her name from the " Cowboys and Indians " magazine that I subscribe too. Needless to say, she is a charmer.
I was happy to hear that Sherry will be spending more time here next year and there will be a handbag class in the mix as well.
Glenda, as always, well done.
