Hello Everyone! I sincerely apologize for not having uploaded videos on Youtube or updating any of my other social networking sites for awhile! My workload has gotten out of control for the past month. I still have quite a bit of work to do, but this should be easing up shortly. :-)
I have something very special and very exciting to share with all of you! Dot Kimura is a former student of mine. She has taken multiple jewelry classes with me and I recently met up with her this past weekend. She smiled and handed me a magazine to look at and to my surprise she had an amazing three page article written about her in the June 2011 issue of San Diego Home /Garden Lifestyles magazine! Wow! What an incredible spread!
I took pictures of some of the metal work that she fabricated in my jewelry classes. She enjoyed making functional objects out of sterling silver. I really like the fact that she incorporates her handmade objects into her everyday life. Below are some wonderful utensils she made!

Dot has made ceramics for over thirty years. She has been involved in metalwork for over ten years. Quite an accomplished woman! I purchased two of her ceramic vases a few years ago and they are proudly displayed in my humble apartment.
Way to go Dot! I'm so glad that she was so nicely recognized for her achievements.
