The greatest creations are those that as you create them, you get lost in your thoughts, by the time you're tired of thinking you're holding in your hands, something from deep within...

Baby Dragon & Nesting Cage - Class! :D

Hi Everyone!! :D Hope you have all been super!

I mentioned in my last post that I would be teaching classes online shortly, well its time! :D I've finished the pieces for them and I'm excited!

They are available through Jean Bernard's website, and for those of you who might be interested it begins May 15 and I'm kicking it off with an early bird special!

I'll be teaching two classes, one being... my miniature Dragons :)

This is the lil dragon we'll be making in class. It's the same dragon as above, only this pic was taken indoors.
One of my favorite thing about making these little guys is that since they are small, they're portable! I can usually work on them anywhere in the house or cupped in my hand instead of being glued to my sculpting table! A few lil ones have even been born on my morning commute ;)

The second one is the hanging nesting cage/cradle area for the dragon. So much fun to make!

The techniques can be adapted to create many other types of cages
and faerie/creature dwellings too, simply by using larger items ;)

Some detail pics:
The back of the empty cage...

It can be hung on the hanger, or taken off...

and placed somewhere else, without it :)

For more details, please head over to the class page on Jean's site or you can email me @

While your there check out the free tutorials she added and to the new site and the other great classes available that you may enjoy :)

I thoroughly enjoyed snapping pics and being able to share the process. I learned so much about myself, my creating habits, and many new techniques which are included in the lessons! I was having so much fun I couldn't help but keep adding more to it :)

Please wish me luck :)

Have you seen the collaboration yet? If you haven't you have got to! It's simply amazing and I'm so honored to be a part of it.

Jean has included fiber optics in the vessel! :OAnd Sherry's harpist.....
Isn't she just beautiful?
My piece will be added to the back of the vessel, listening to the beautiful sounds of the harpist...

oh and guess what?
This very much counts as part of my ufo/wip challenge!!! Another month spent creating and productive! My house surely needs cleaning but woo hoo I finished something!! :D I also started a few new pieces that I can't wait to work on some more, including my lil rodent faerie. I'll have pictures to share shortly! :)

Thank you all for visiting and big warm welcome to my new followers!

Have a super-fantastic , wonderful and creative day everyone!

Big giant hugs,
