 Kim Caldwell  created an artistic  challenge  for me when she asked  me if I would teach a tiara  class at her event this summer  Artistic Affaire Les Sirens  . HMMM I was stumped a bit .Those who know me know I am not the soldering type , I just never could  get the hang of it and yet I have 2 years of College in fine metal smithing but the 2 styles are WAY different . So any way I thought why not a head band instead !!! Kind of something a 1920 mermaid would wear . So this is what I  came up with . Kim's event will be   July 15 - 17th  at a sweet little  beach town boutique hotel  in Manhattan Beach  CA . A town I once called  
home.

Why not?
Who said that Tiaras have to be soldered?

Remember the day we sat in your studio and I was trying my best to learn to solder? You actually have far more skill than you give yourself credit for.
Still, I think that what you have made will be more "teaching friendly", since many are intimidated by solder.
It is beautiful....you go girl!!!
