I just took a class with Richard Salley at Art and Soul in Las Vegas.  I had so much fun and he is such a wonderful instructor.  He made all of us feel at ease in his class as he joked with us about our grades and giving me an incomplete as I did not have the bottom piece connected to the sides.  This is my project complete with me and grandma inside the locket.  This picture is old as grandma turned 90 this year.  We won't say how old I am, just that I was not the first grandchild.  Grandma will always hold a special place in my heart. She was put in a care center about a month ago and is having trouble adjusting.  It was hard to see her there as she has always been so independent.  My uncles just could not take care of her anymore as she was falling down to much and really hurting herself and the last time ended up in the hospital.  We love you grandma!!! Stay tough as always. You are in out prayers.


  1. Hi Denise, I'm glad I saw the actual piece you made while in Las Vegas. It is gorgeous. Your photograph is great. It shows the depth of the etching and the contrast of the metal finishes.
