    Aren’t they great, Lynn?! I absolutely love them both, and have worn both of them to rave reviews! As well as saving her sanity, Dawn’s therapy really made me a happy Chick! :D
    Thanks so much for posting these, Dawn…I’m still having internet issues at home, so I’m unable to post the pics I took of the one I made for you. I just hope we get the problem resolved soon! ;)

    Too fun! I’m glad there are people close enough to connect like this. Beautiful necklaces!

    I know there are some other Ohioans here, but we are scattered around the state.

    Oh, believe me, Cindy…Dawn and I don’t live close at all! USPS is a wonderful thing! LOL! We just shipped things back and forth through several states. Actually, I’m quite sure I’m closer to you if you live in Ohio. I’m originally from Columbus, but now live in PA outside of Harrisburg. :D
