September Giveaway by Z'anne Bakke

The Archeologist's FindTurquoise Nuggets, Copper and Coral Beads

For my birthday this month, I decided that I would give the presents. This necklace was created from my stash of turquoise nuggets. In the same drawer was a small package of coral beads. They looked so good together, but needed something else to highlight each piece. I tried pearls, I tried gold, I tried silver, none would work that day. I put everything down, walked away and came back about an hour later to see a small copper bead resting under the package of coral. Well, of course! Out came the copper beads and this necklace fell into place. Isn't it great when that happens?

To enter to win this serendipitous necklace, just post a comment here and at the end of the month we will draw a name from all those commenting. Good Luck to all of you!

It is with profound respect and humble submission, I beg to state the following few lines for your kind consideration. I hope you will spare some of your valuable minutes to read the following appeal with sympathetic mind. I must confess that it is with great hopes, joy and enthusiasm that I write you this comment.
This necklace is truly a most beautiful and elegant piece of fine jewelry. It is something I would be proud and honored to present to my lovely wife, to whom I have been married now for over 28 years. This necklace on her, and combined with its stunning beauty, I know and believe by the faith, she would be the Shining Gem, in any social setting.
Z’Anne, thank you for this gracious offering. I trust this note must surely find you in good condition of health. Rod Stroh

Greetings Z' -
I LOVE this piece! and was so happy to see it in person when you had it as part of your First Friday showings at Iris House a couple weeks ago.
Beautiful combinations with the fire of the coral and the water of the turquoise, accented by the copper beads.
My elemental self and being would (will? be declaratory in those wishes!) be ecstatic to wear this powerful medicine piece.
What a gift you are offering.
Many thanks for all of your creations and inspirations.

So, for Diane C. you are entered.

Hi, My name is Kelly Lish. I'm a mixed media artist living in Beaverton, Oregon. I was wondering if you were taking any new artists for your group, and if so what would I need to do to apply?
