We will be creating a French Wedding Globe who’s formal French name is Globe d’ Mariee. If you have been fortunate to see one of these exquisite objects form the 19th century then you surely know just how magical and haunting they appear. To take one home, you would most likely empty your bank account. I am happy to say, that for some time, I have studied the globes learning all the meaning of each element. It would be my pleasure to guide you as you create your own Globe d’ Mariee.
I will share with you many different ways to style your globe. What a truly breathtaking wedding or anniversary gift your globe would make as go into the wedding season. Won’t you join me as we create a work of art that will be cherished and become your family heirloom just as the ladies and lords of the french aristocratic society.

Kim Williams. “Salvage from the past to make life richer in the present” is my mantra. A BA in Theatre Education and 30 years in the classroom has provided me with a profound appreciation for creative design. Transitioning from teaching to retirement came with challenges. With a desire to channel creative energy, mix in a little inspiration for the love of collecting antiques, and an over zealous appreciation for historical clothing all came together like a blinding bolt of lightening when I discovered how to repurpose old jewelry.
My skills as a prop maker have led me to love mixed media as well as jewelry arts. In 2013, I found Artful Gathering while searching for classes that I could take to gain more knowledge. After a few gratifying classes with AG, my goal was to develop some classes of my own and join the faculty. This is year three for me as a faculty member! I earned a position as a member of the creative team for ICE Resin in 2014 and I have taught in person classes. I love teaching and it would be my pleasure to have you join me this year in my Artful Gathering class.
