Last week end I spent time getting instruction in two diverse ,but dear to my heart, topics. Saturday I learned to make jewelry patterns out of jump rings with Barbara at Absolutely Everything. It was sort of like knitting with metal and pliers. I made a bracelet out of base metal.

On Sunday I went to a cooking class with Chef Didi Emmons that covered everything with to do with corn, now at peak season. There was corn soup, corn pudding and corn stew complimented with a tomato basil salad and chocolate zucchini cake.

I ordered sterling silver jump rings online and bought fresh corn at the Farmers Market. This Labor Day I labored at making a necklace, bracelet and earrings. There will be corn stew for dinner tonight. Sweet!
