Copper booklace Necklace
I've finally finished my necklace that I started in Nina's class, after trying to find the wire at Australia's biggest chain of hardware stores, I finally gave up and used the wire that I bought at a chain of art stores, I'm sure it's the same thing just with a different name.
The book covers are made from copper, the pages are mini collages, sandwiched between sheets of mica, the fabric was my own hand decorated and stamped with a stamp I carved from erasers. The cream beads are very old ivory that belonged to my husband's grandmother, and the key was one of a collection I've gathered over the years.
Plans are already underway for the art retreat in 2008, this time it will be in Melbourne, they are still deciding on tutors, but I for one hope Nina returns. If anyone is interested in making enquiries re the retreat they can contact Jo or Jacky for more details or to let them know who you would like to come here and teach.
