"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul." Elder Uchtdorf
We are all smiles above after completing our bracelets with Leah Williams of Ruby Mae Jewelry on Thursday evening. All of our workshops are truly amazing, and wonderful connections are created, relationships deepened, talents enhanced, but sometimes, it is just truly magic! Thursday evening was one of those.
"The sand may brush off, the salt may wash clean, the tans made fade, but the Memories will last forever."
"Make your own magic."
Leah encourages participants to bring meaningful buttons, beads, or other treasures that we might incorporate into our jewelry. Erin brought a tray of amazing sea shells and sea glass she collected on the beaches of Maui the week before the workshop.
I love Cheryl's FREE YOUR SPIRIT charm! It was fun to see how surprised she was at the color combination that unfolded as she chose the treasures that would become her bracelet.
When Leah made a suggestion that I add a special button or bead to the end of my bracelet, I was not expecting that the finished piece would become a tribute and remembrance of my dad. I really expected that it would be fun to wear with my jeans.
Laughing, a few tears, creating and enjoying one another's company made for a memorable evening. We are in the process of picking a date for the next Ruby Mae Jewelry Workshop. If you want to receive updates on class schedules, make sure to join our email list.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
