CLASS DESCRIPTION:

Step right up, step right up! Get your tickets now! Three days, three rings, one heckuva good time with Ace of Studio Luna Verde, sharing with you more tips and tricks about ring making than can fit in a magician’s hat. Our circus days will be filled with exploring a variety show of rings and shanks, how to shape, how to size, how to curse when you need to size again. Since the circus is always on the move, i will be showing you different ways to incorporate movement into each of our creations. In ring one: a perched prong setting over a spinner ring shank. In ring two: a spinning cabochon ring (as in, the cabochon itself spins!). In ring three (and possibly four & five) : a set of stackers introducing dangling hollow forms.

Are you ready for this? Are you ready to join the circus? Be prepared to wow the crowds with your creations, to dance with fire, to be a part of the greatest show on earth! Or, at least, in texas…

INSTRUCTOR BIO: 

Ace, of Studio Luna Verde, wandered (and settled) into the shadow of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, after many years exploring and hiking and driving all over the western U.S., livIng in places like Point Arena, California / Moab, Utah / Flagstaff, Arizona. Experiences have included driving 1950s era tour buses for Green Tortoise Adventure Travel / performing for a year with a three-ring circus / hiking into (and out of) the Grand Canyon so many times she’s lost count / living out of a ’72 Toyota Landcruiser for three (and a half) years while exploring the U.S. / and failing miserably at surfing on the Sea of Cortez in Baja California. She loves spicy chocolate, and lightning storms. Her largest creation thus far is having built her own studio, where she currently makes her eclectic jewelry and unabashedly embraces the art of imperfection.
