Took a class with the always creative and talented Connie Govea Stuart yesterday. The class was held at Sweet Magnolia in downtown Danville where Connie showed us some wonderful, new techniques. The necklaces are beautiful pieces of art and these photos do not do them justice.

" No, she isn't from the South -- owner and interior designer Jill Cox just happens to love magnolia trees. Her shop features antiques, new furnishings and accessories for the home and garden. Mixed-media creations by local artist Connie Govea Stuart, who utilizes vintage pieces, offer unusual gift choices. For the garden, there are whitewashed birdhouses and weathered bistro sets.
