Sparkling Party in Tucson

Our last night in Tucson was just a blast....the annual Crystallized Swarovski Elements party was held in the courtyard in the new location for the showroom & classes this year. So we had a beautiful, perfect evening under the Tucson stars with music, drinks,friends & fun....who can ask for much more!

At the party & under the Tucson Sky....love the lighting & catus! Hubby took this picture.......cool isn't it?

The classes and demos went well. Here I am getting ready for my students.....




Here I am working hard at the Demo booth in the Crystallized Swarovski Elements Showroom showing how to make my Sparkling Crystal Watch Bracelet!
My new friend the talented, Jamie North from Canada! Her earring demo followed mine at the showroom.....see all those sparkles behind us....each one was a fabulous Crytallized Swarovski Elements crystal.....They were fabulous in person!

One of the best things of the week was that I was invited along with 19 other designers to become an ambassador for Crystallized Swarovski Elements.........I am beyond honored to say the least!!! I will let you know more about that later but I am doing a sparkling crystal dance.


Isn't this just a sparkling laptop......it was in the showroom in Tucson!

I met some other instuctors that to just say that they are talented is not doing them justice at all! They are some of the most amazing, super talented ladies and gentlemen that I have had the pleasure to know.......I feel so inspired just being around them! One of the gals that I met was Jamie North. She is FABULOUS! Wait till you have a chance to take a peek at some of her jewelry....amazing! You have to check out her Glitz N Kitz Website if you are looking for some new design ideas and yes, she sells both kits & finished jewelry.
Here is Leslee, Jamie & myself at the party!


Also Deb Simon......the gal has done it all! Fabulous and she has a new book out. We were teaching classes side by side.
One of the instuctors that is so nice, sweet and super talented is Valeen Hirata. She is just adorable and what a pleasure to meet her!
Leslee Frumin is a bead & metal artists that is just an amazing instuctor......She lives in California but originally lived in Michigan so we of course hit it! Truly a wonderful lady and very talented . She has been teaching for many years. I am thinking I will need to check out one of her classes in the near future!
There were so many more wonderfully talented instuctors there and several that I didn't get to meet but had hoped to so maybe next time!
