    Wemai Coffee Chick says:

    Thank you Betty and Cindy! I got the bracelet back and a copy of the magazine 2 days ago. It’s 10 months since I submitted it, so it takes a while, but it’s worth it – it’s so much fun seeing your own jewelry in a magazine, and we don’t have Norwegian mags so it has to be a foreign one! :-)

    Wenche, there I was today, finally getting to look through my BeadStyle mag, and in the index I saw a bracelet and thought “wow, that looks like a Wenche original”…and then I got to the article and it was you! Congratulations!! You’ve hit the big time with this eye-popping piece! :D
