Birdsong Two: Karla's Pieces of Time class

I hope you're not getting tired of hearing about Birdsong Two yet, as I still have more of the fun to show you!
This year, I sat at a table filled with the gals from Texas: my buddy from last year, Cami...
and her buddies (left to right below) Tammy, Nicki, Kristi, me, Cami, and my buddy who came with us from Colorado, Rebecca!

After another amazing meal...
we re-assembled for our final (boo hoo!) class, taught by Karla: a necklace she designed called Pieces of Time.
 The kits came so sweetly wrapped in these incredible, vintage bird seed boxes!
Inside the box was everything we needed to create our necklaces!  Karla sought out ALL vintage and antique elements for the kits.  We had all brought along jewelry tools and set off to work with Karla's detailed directions and assemble our necklaces!
 She taught us some great tricks!  I've made jewelry before, but after Karla's class, I'm much better!
Here's my finished piece!  (I wish I could say the photo does it justice, but it just doesn't show the sparkle and detail of what Karla designed!)
Here it is on my neck...a little better view; and you can also see in this photo the lovely name tags Karla made for all of us!
With that, Birdsong Two was officially over!  But we didn't leave yet...Karla welcomed us to hang out for a bit, so there's a little more to show you: stay tuned!

You are so good to remember to take photos of the packages and the creating steps of our classes... we were filled with anticipation as we experienced them! Thanks for capturing those memories!
Hugs, Tami
