Westmoreland County Jewelry Artists Meet-up...

Last night, I attended the Westmoreland County Jewelry Artists meet-up in Greensburg.  I had a really good time!  The group is composed of a motley crew of jewelry artists from around the area.  Even though each of them has their own particular style and forte, they are able to offer encouragement and give guidance with their projects.  There's no shortage of talent here!  It's an active group, with at least two meet-ups scheduled a month.  If you're local, you should consider joining the group.  CLICK HERE to check out their Yahoo group.

Andrew, it was so nice of you to join us last evening. We had a wonderful time. It is nice to bounce ideas and techniques off each other. It truly is a group that shares freely and has a great time doing it! We have a great passion for our art but more importantly is the camaraderie the group shares. We hope to see you at future meetings!

I am so jealous. The only meetups that we have in my area is 30 miles away and is primarily for seed beaders.

Shaiha, it's a pretty far drive for me. About an hour, but I really enjoyed it. I am getting into seed beads more, so it helps to have the expertise of the ladies to help. Sharon taught me a way to cheat with peyote stitch and it goes twice as fast now. Everyone works on something different though. So there's seed beading and stringing and chain maille.
