    Thanks, guys! One of the reasons I posted this was for our comrades in Bead Prison – perhaps they can still make jewelry (despite No New Beads!!!! :( ) using up their leftover tid-bits… and if they are short of findigs, they can always take a page ut of Ravin’s book and use spiral binder wire, or metal coathanger wire, or… Hey, anyone heard fro Ravin? haven’t seen her lately, and she is such a big presence. I hope all is ok…

    Oh man, I love this!! Would wear this in a heart beat. Wish I had your left overs. I have to sit down and get to creating. Ted wants me to make and sell some of what I have. Husbands can be so pushy at times. LOL Gotta love em!

    I’ve been wondering about Ravin, as well. I hope she is okay. Miss her!
