    Oh I wish I was there. Nice to find you WP blog. I learned how to make jewelry from SACI, years ago. Take a look at my jewelry work now. I am sure the studio would be interested. Ciao

    • Hi Kathleen, thanks for your message. You jewelry designs since your studies at SACI are very impressive! We especially like your “Re-Creative” jewelry line based on Film and TV stars in Hollywood! Best wishes and come back soon for a visit! Ciao, SACI

        Thank you. Oh I plan too… Someday I would love to guest teach a class in wax carving at SACI.

        SACI gave me my love for jewelry design started my career. Check out the Ingrid Bergman piece, that challenged my soldering skills..
