Make your own Silver Jewelry is a Hit!

Our New Lillo Ollo Jewelry Classes have been so fun! Thanks to all who have attended, especially for being patient with us as we learn to teach it to you!

We have decided to make the classes a bit smaller, and a bit longer. There are just so many options of what to make, we don't want anyone to feel rushed. You are always welcome to come in early to look at the books and stamps ahead of class time!

If you would like to attend any of these classes, please call and reserve a spot ASAP!

Upcoming classes:
Thurs. April 23- 6-9pm
Thurs. April 30- 6-9pm
Sat. May 2- 3-6pm
Thurs. May 7- 6-9pm

If you cannot make it to any of these classes, don't let that stop you! We can set up a time for you and your friends at another time.

DADS- Want to bring the kids in to do prints, but don't want to do the "dirty work"? We can do all the work for you, and you can pick it up the next day! $20 Finishing fee includes a cute zipper pouch and gift wrapping. Please make an appointment, so we know you are coming!

Here are some examples of what our customers have been making!

This is a Ring with her Husband's Fingerprint on it!

This one carved her initial into it instead of using a stamp! Very creative!

Today's THV Morning Crew Paints!

As many of you know, we try to donate to as many causes as we possibly can. One that we have helped out with for three years now, is the Arkansas FoodBank Network's Event and Auction, "Empty Bowls." Every year, we have BJ, Tom, & Alyson paint a bowl to be auctioned off at the event. I wish they would quit their "day jobs" and come work for me, but something tells me they love what they do....(as do I!) I have included some pics of us, as well as their bowls. I will be on the show with them Thursday morning, to promote Empty Bowls, and The Painted Pig.

Empty Bowls offers an evening of food prepared by some of Little Rock’s finest chefs, open wine and beer bar, and the opportunity to bid on beautiful artwork by Arkansas artists in live and silent auctions.

  • Iron Chef Cat Cora
