    Thanks, CAS. I got them on eBay, I think. They are very hard to find and I had to look a long time.

    Oh thank you everybody. I don’t use a tripod when I shoot and I really should but I am just too lazy to set it up. I am shaky so I try to rest my elbows on the table. I built a cheap light box out of PVC pipe and it really does improve the pictures. I just use the MS-Windows picture editor.

    A sort of ‘tweedy’ brown outfit, or the same in medium blues; oh there’s lots of things it would go really well with and a matching bracelet and a really striking ‘chapeau’. I love to see hats on gals that can wear them; I can’t. They are SO UPTOWN looking.

    Never been to Sedona but these colors also remind me of some of the beautiful sunsets I can see over the Blue Ridge Mountains from my house.

    Oh yes, I’ve seen many desert sunsets living in Arizona. Your necklace is a great representation of them with the fiery colors and boldness. This necklace is quite the statement! Love it!
