Hello! I received my materials today for the Artiscape event in mid April where I will be taking Tonia Davenport’s plexiglass choker class. How exciting!! I received a gorgeous name tag that was actually a packet of beautiful cardstock with a wired organza neck ribbon running through it. Inside is the ticket for my class as well as an agenda for the 4 day event and pages for autographs. VERY nice!
Today’s bead is actually a small skeleton key that came with the Artiscape packet as part of a collaborative art project. It came in a cellophane packet that included this card explaining the art project which includes a charity auction on the last day:
A collaborative Art Project: “unlocking inspiration”
Take part in this collaborative art project by creating a work of art with a skeleton key! Anything goes here, from jewelry to canvas work to handbound books, as long as a skeleton key is somehow included (use of actual key is optional). Pieces are collected at event and displayed en masse, a wonderful display unveiled at Saturday’s “Age of Innocence” party. A silent auction follows (ends Sunday noon). Proceeds benefit the women’s fund of central Ohio. Have fun, be creative, it’s all for a good cause.
I’m excited to work this key into a jewelry project since I’ve never worked with something like this before. I’m open to ideas if you want to throw any out there! Thanks a bunch!!
