I started following Jessica on social media was surprised to find that she lives only 2 1/1 hours away and has started teaching classes in her studio in Fuquay Varina. Wonderful for me! She has both studio time and scheduled classes available. I signed up for her "Stone on Stone" class which involved creating a bezel ring from silver. Working with silver is new to me but am very excited to start learning.
The class was suppose to have four students but lucky for me there were only two of us. Her studio is wonderful-everything beautifully organized in just the right spot with lots of "eye-candy inspiration" everywhere.

Jessica was very patient, knowledgeable and so willing to share not only her skill but her supply sources. I know I seemed a little over the top with my note pad and jotting down everything for later review.

I love my new ring and will return I'm sure in the near future for another class!
