    Thank you all! MY favorite color is green, so I had a lot of fun creating this necklace. I acually won the pendant here on LB, during the 2010 Easter Egg Hunt! Ugh, I’ve had a long day, I had to mop the entire first floor! Now I have to organize my beading supplys! I think I will create a few more pieces later in the day.
