JoAnna Pierotti Classes

I had such a wonderful time this past week at the inaugural west coast art-is-you retreat in Petaluma, CA.  I took two workshops from JoAnna Pierotti.  Her work is so impressive that it sells out within a few minutes after it is listed on etsy.  She is very talented and one of the most creative artists I have ever met.  Her work is inspirational and she is so willling to share it with others.  All of the students did amazing work with the help of JoAnna.   You can find JoAnna's work on her blog which is at:   She is also the latest member of susanlenartkazmer design team. Congratulations JoAnna!  I know you will be a great addition to their team of inpirational artists.  Our class had so many wonderful artists that mostly work in jewelry design and are also teachers. Some of the students are: Riki Shumacher at:,  Diana Frey at: , and Debby Anderson at:  I was surrounded by so much talent all week and cannot wait to attend this event next year.
