Beadalon and Jewelry Television's Jewel School sponsored jewelry making classes on the Holland America m/s Eurodam. We traveled from Ft. Lauderdale to Grand Turks, Puerto Rico and St. Maarten. Candie Cooper, Christiane Ross, Julie Evans and I taught mini workshops on the days when we were at sea. It was a lot of work, but it was great fun, too. And, in such a beautiful setting!
A lot of our students were first-time jewelry makers, so it was really exciting to introduce them to our favorite hobby. We had some Jewel Schoolers, too! JTV gave away a cruise to one of their viewers and Nancy attended every class, God love her. She wears great jewelry and is a wonderful ambassador for jewelry making.
When we weren't teaching, we were busy recruiting people to come to our classes. Of course, recruiting involved making new friends on the ship, going to live shows every night and a whole lot of line dancing. I loved it! This is our favorite band from the cruise: Chuck Mead and the Grassy Knoll Boys. Check out Candie's blog for more pix .
We started making a Country & Western Cool style board on Pinterest before we left for the cruise and we just keep adding to it! Makes that cruising feeling last a little longer. Boots, dresses and the bling to go with 'em. Plus, links to tunes and pix that remind me of our country music adventures, y'all.
