* * * * * * * * * *In the past week, I have been visited by good-fortune twice!
First, do you recall this lovely bracelet I was eager to show you earlier this month?
...with the exquisite beadwork by Nancy
...and this silver clasp I adore?
I read about it on the NEDBeads blog
(with better photos than I can take)!
I wrote and shared about it on this blog,
to further our conversation about seed-beadwork.
Then, I got the lucky message telling me
I was the winner!
Now as I've mentioned here more than once, I'm not able to do this type of intricate bead work (even if I DID have the patience...which I don't), but I admire it and the artists who create these pieces tremendously! So I am surprised and honored and thrilled to have won Nancy's beautiful cuff bracelet! It's like a treasure to me!
And speaking of treasures and gifts...
...as if that wasn't enough
good fortune for me
(after a bit of a dry spell...)
I received the news last week that a photograph of mine
would be included in
Lori Anderson's new e-book:
...and more good news,
I was given a free copy
as a gift for contributing!
So let's just call that my "lucky week!" If you haven't been lucky enough to get a free copy or win one Lori has given away, you can still purchase one from her blog, Pretty Things!
Thanks for listening to my story of a double-dose of good luck! I'll resume my normal "whining schedule" next time! :-)
Oh yes, and my Spring jewelry sale ends April 30th. Just added these a bit ago! Everything in studio is 15% off! Still have more to add! Visit Sharyl's Jewelry to see the full collection. Thanks!
