Suzanne G and Cady

Suzanne's version of the Valentine Heart. The colors are sooo beautiful! The first of many....

A masterful piece of work, m'dear! Black onyx and copper...

Suzanne has been a busy girl, putting her class skills to fabulous use. All are gorgeous, but I am totally captivated by her clever rendition of the Hammered Heart. She put together a great heirloom for her stepmom....
