LBJ Workshops are here to stay!

The jewelry-making workshops at LBJ have been a super fun and transformative experience for me. I’ve learned more than any of the attendees! Moreover, I've discovered that the art of jewelry crafting is therapeutic in ways I never anticipated. When people enter the studio - they enter the creative zone - which is a great place to be! The process demands presence and focus. When we’re in the workshop, we find ourselves fully immersed in the task at hand, leaving behind the stresses of everyday life. It's a form of meditation, a way to quiet the mind and channel creativity.

I absolutely love sharing my studio with people - it’s so much fun!. One of the remarkable things about making beaded jewelry is its seemingly straightforward process - after all, it’s stringing beads. We learned that in kindergarten. However, the heart of jewelry crafting lies in its design. The ability to envision a piece, choose the right materials, and harmonize elements into a coherent and beautiful whole is both challenging and rewarding. And, beyond the tangible results – JEWELRY - there's something incredibly therapeutic about the act of making jewelry. And jewelry making offers a tangible sense of accomplishment.
