We’re excited to announce the artBLISS doors are open for registration.
artBLISS jewelry workshops is celebrating its 5th anniversary and we would love for you to join us! It’s hard to believe 5 years have gone by since we hosted the Inaugural Event, a gathering of top-notch instructors and fellow jewelry designers and friends. We have met so many people from our jewelry community and made new friends over the years. We’ve learned new techniques and left the events feeling inspired with a renewed love for handmade jewelry. We’ve had the privilege of learning from generous instructors who have come in from all over the country. Students, too, have joined us all the way from CA and Canada. This year we’re continuing this tradition and hope to make it the best year yet. Won’t you join us?
artBLISS 2014 will offer exciting workshops with these renowned instructors:

If you’d like a glimpse of what it’s like to attend a retreat at artBLISS, have a look at one of our recent events. Deryn Mentock and Diane Cook joined us for Boots & Bliss – an incredibly fun-filled weekend! Here are a few photos from the retreat back in March

Having fun at the Saturday night Shindig! We had an extra-special vendor that joined us all the way from PA. Linda Sarubin of The Gatchellville Store brought all sorts of vintage and antique components – mainly buttons! We couldn’t resist. Fortunately for us, Linda plans to return in September for our 5th Anniversary weekend.
