Thank you so much, Cynthia and thank you very much, beaddesign...believe it or not, I have no other web presence!  I bury myself in my work room and bead...that's it!!!  My entering this contest took some huevos on my part, since it will be judged by the beading community here.

The open links are a perfect counterpoint to the clustery beaded beads -- they bring a a wonderful lightness to the piece.  Beautiful work!
