Blog Hop your way for chance to win

Artful Gathering Event Registration is Open!
I'm the Spotlight Artist for The Artful Gathering Blog Hop! Follow along with me for fun, creativity, and a chance to win a $200.00 e-gift card from Jerry's Artarama!
This summer I will be teaching a fabulous premiere video workshop at The Artful Gathering Online Art Retreat 2012
Soldering Flambé
From July 15 to August 25
You’ve heard of soldering with a torch, but it seems a little scary. Maybe even a little intimidating. Kecia has heard all the reasons that you might not be sure you are ready to try it. She's here to tell you it is easy, and that once you’ve been taught the correct way to do it, there’ll be no stopping you!
You will start from the beginning and learn how to operate the torch. From there it’ll be step by step, trouble shooting and learning the ins and outs of bringing solder to metal. After you learn how to operate your torch, you will practice bringing solder to your metal to build a background. From there you will be adding a bezel to your soldered metal to create a focal point. Once the focal point is set, you will add more layers and texture to the bezel by adding papers and dimensional items.
Then... Kecia will walk you through all aspects of using resin. Resin is another product that tends to “scare” people. Following her tips and advice, you will master resin easily. Kecia is an expert on the topic of resin - so take advantage of her knowledge!
Finally, you create a necklace for your newly, handmade, forged pendant! Kecia will discuss a few ways to build a chain using her own methods of creating with vintage, deconstructed elements. You’ll find that you’ll be learning quite a few different techniques all wrapped up in one class and what you’ll take away is the ability to create unique, funky, one of a kind soldered elements that can be used in jewelry (think pendants, bracelets, earrings....), bookmaking and more.
