Shea and Deb are a mother-daughter combo forming the Gilded Life, they are amazing, talented women and have great hospitality. Also, they know how to serve desserts, lots of them. Until 2 in the morning.
The charm that the Gilded Life girls taught was breathtaking. The techniques were new to me and that made me feel adventurous.Kaari arrived as we worked on our first charm and swept all of us off of our feet with this necklace.
This was a pleasure to put together. I originally did not attach the "shine" charm to the necklace because I thought that it may be to heavy, but, it is really beautiful all together. Aside from the class itself, I had a blast with the Texas mommas and my bird. Robin gave out lil' gifts (stamped fabric swatch w/vintage buttons), Heather A. did as well (thanks for the beaded charm!), and so did Shea and Deb (the initial necklace)! Thanks to all of you!
I received an extra gift from Robin, I am in love with the packaging.
It is a thimble, I love it so and I will use it once I can break the seal on the bag. It will take a little while longer to do that, by summer, I'm sure.
