    So many of my personal things, nice labradorite nuggets!
    And, congratulations. Well deserved I must add.
    Maybe, sometime, you could share your experience? Did you submit your piece? If so, how did you go about that? Once selected what is the process? I hope you get your piece back? etc. etc.
    Thank you. A personal favorite!

    Sorry I didn’t reply sooner to your question, Seashellsally! It’s been a busy month plus we went on vacation. Anyway, about the magazine submissions… each magazine has different requirements so you will need to check out their website for details. When I submitted my bracelet, I just emailed a picture to them. Then they emailed me and said they wanted to use it. I received a form to fill out and instructions on when I had to mail it etc. Yes, you do get your piece back. :) It does take a while tho!
