Merry Christmas - Happy Holidays to all!! I hope it's been a good one for you:)

(See post "How My Klutz Collection Came To Be.") So I immediately cancelled our dream trip & frankly went into a whiny funk. One night I dreamed of an etching project that got me back on track. And here it is. "Winter - Spring" is a reversible necklace - with my original designs etched on both sides of each brass panel. It's 2 necklaces in one. The chain is beautiful, coated brass by Vintaj. I made matching earrings. So this creation comes with a story that ends happily... sort of...
