Recently, I taught Tucson Bangle II, which incorporates Delica beads and SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS and uses a new technique that I developed called Cross-Over Peyote stitch. It is always exciting for me to watch my students "get it" and enjoy the process.
Several month after the class, I was back at the same bead shop (Bead Soup, Savage Mills, MD) and one off my former students, Jo Ray came to me with several bracelets she had designed using my technique. This, for me, is the greatest joy in teaching when I watch my own students become designer and teacher. So, a better interpretation of the old saying could be, "Those who can, do: Those who can appreciate, teach."
