Adele's Bio:

Adele Frances is a retired career counselor and life coach whose current mantra is “Why work when you can create?”    She has been involved with the Albuquerque art scene for the past twelve years, selling her mixed media and fiber creations in galleries around the city and state.  Now she is concentrating on her new duties as docent at the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History where she leads tours for school children.  A true Gemini, Adele flits from passion to passion, thus discovering the potential of silk cocoons as jewelry components last year.  She is happy to pass on what she has learned and hopes you will enjoy this upcoming workshop and expand your own skills.
