Details are etchy....

Yep - etchy - I attended a class with the uber talented Jenny Crossley today. What a fabulous teacher she is! If you ever get the chance to take one of her classes, I can guarantee you'll love it. She is so generous from the kits she provides, to the knowledge she shares, all taught in an atmosphere of friendly banter. Can you tell I had a fabulous time despite the record heat?

The end product of the class today was an adorable little book pendant. This is my interpretation:
Jenny covered metal etching (we had some chemical fun ;) Then we made the book using copper mesh, vintage book pages, wire and a tintype photo. Here's a close up of the etching:

It was wonderful catching up with friends too - Jo and Sarah, Liz, Sue, Joy and a new friend Claudia. A huge thanks goes to Gail for opening up her home to us rowdy messmakers .....muahhhh.

This is a photo of the group. It was an honour to spend the afternoon with this bunch of ladies.

Top row: Joy, Sue, Gail, Jo and Claudia.
Bottom row (and what nice bottoms they are!): myself, the Master and inventor of the Crozzenator 1000-6000 Jenny Crossley, and Liz.

What a wonderful day!
