A Special Day with Sally Jean!

I have always been enamored with the exquisite pieces created by Sally Jean Alexander. I have always wanted to take a class from her, but know that I don't need to add something else to my plate. I have enough trouble keeping focused and don't need something new and shiney to distract me! Well, Elf Patty has been wanting try her creative hand at making some charms. On a whim, she sat down and signed up for Sally Jean's necklace class!!! We were both so excited and I was so tickled that Elf Patty was going to fulfill a dream!
Almost as good as getting to go myself.

Patty had a fabulous day and created the beauty below. Her necklace features her mom at various ages. What a sweet tribute!


This image/charm below is my favorite.

So, Elf Patty, you did good and we all will expect more wonderful treasures in the future!
Woo Hooooo!!!!!

way to go Elf Patty!!! the necklace is so beautiful!!! I have the honor of owning an orginal Sally Jean...ofourse, i bought it way before she became so famous and could afford it...her style has evolved, as it should!....but, I do treasure my "creative fairy" necklace I bought at Magic of Christmas so many yrs ago!

Great necklace. I took a class from Rose's Glassware in Tigard, but never seem to have the time to do much. But one of these days I will do it.
