Nina Bagley Class at Asilomar

We started our three day journey with making a necklace to set the theme of our copper covered book. My theme was gratitude (although I didn't learn immediately not to stamp your letters twice, so it is really grattitude!)

There is a postcard from my grandmother and great aunt written in 1916 to their parents in Colorado while they were visiting relatives in New York. It is so dear to me. The ballerina is my lovely daughter Hillary at about age 7 or 8!

The young girl in white is my great aunt. Most of the hand written titles on the pages under the mica are photocopies taken from the family bible.

The photo in the locket is my mother. On the other side is a photo of my daughter with the word Tomorrow. I learned so much from Nina, not only lots of techniques on working with wire and metal and fabric, but also in the emotional experience of creating art with things that are precious to you, how to put personal meaning into your pieces.
Of course, Asilomar was such a beautiful setting and I had the pleasure of having my daughter and 4 year old granddaughter join me. What more could you ask for? Well, better food, for sure, but then Pacific Grove, Cannery Row and downtown Monterey are about 5 minutes away, so that worked out great, too!
