Monday we took my "mermaid's treasure" necklace to the state fair. Since there are barely any entries in the professional arts-jewelry category it may actually win a prize. Also since there are barely any entries in this category the person in charge asked if I would submit another piece. I sent it to the fair yesterday with my co-worker who was taking a bronze sculpture. The pendant is pictured above but you'll have to use your imagination for the rest of the piece, which consists of three strands of pewter freshwater pearls, garnet beads of various sizes, crystals, and silver. It is a pretty piece but not as impressive as "mermaid's treasure".
I have been given a lovely award by Bethel.
I appreciate being recognized and I'm glad people enjoy reading my blog. It's hard for me to limit myself to just a few blogs to pass this award on to, so if you'd like to claim this award for yourself please feel free.
