A good time was had by all at Beksan's "Look Good & Feel Better" Workshop on March 15th in San Francisco. We learned how to make some delicious, healthy appetizers and snacks as well as the health benefits of wearing different semi-precious stones. The evening began with a cooking demonstration by Denyse Hale and Christine Floyd who did a fantastic job.
A group of twelve women exchanged ideas, took notes, and drank some wine as Denyse and Christine showed us how to make three different healthy recipes. The first one was Hummus. I never realized how easy it is to make homemade hummus and it's so tasty and flavorful. We have included an easy recipe for homemade hummus in our 3/21 newsletter. If you haven't already subscribed to Beksan Designs' newsletter, you can get a copy of the recipe by subscribing NOW on our website at www.beksandesigns.com

Next we learned how to make delicious lavash wraps. The secret ingredient was the homemade green goddess dressing, it gave these wraps an extraordinarily delicious flavor! Denyse also demonstrated how to create yummy yet healthy nachos; it is all about the ingredients and she shared with us their nutritional value. We were so fortunate to have Denyse who has her own business as a Nutritional Consultant and Professional Chef. You can learn more about her at www.denysehale.com
Meyla then took over to share how wearing semi-precious stones can help one to look good and feel better. Each stone has its own unique legendary benefits and we spent time sharing this information with our guests. Then everyone wanted to see the semi-precious stones in our jewelry and check out our new Spring arrivals! It was so much fun watching everyone chat with each other while trying on different semi-precious stone jewelry, whether it was set in 24K gold vermeil, sterling silver, or brass. Seeing our guests leave with earrings, rings, bracelets, or necklaces that they seemed to truly love was so rewarding. Our Turkish silk floral scarves and cross-body kilim shoulder bags were very well received and were purchased by several guests.
All in all, it was a great evening. Thank you to all who came to the workshop and supporting Beksan Designs. Check our events calendar for future workshops and trunk shows; we look forward to sharing more expertise and our beautiful products with you!
