I was fortunate enough to be include in the Absolutely Beads 2007 juried show sponsored by Beads & Beyond in Bellevue, WA. I'm sharing my 2 entries.
"Miser" which I dedicated to my Dad. The story card with it read: "My Dad is a very generous man; he knows the value of a dollar and would much rather hang onto it than spend it. It's always been a source of laughter when my Mom and I would tell him we're going shopping; he was just never sure if he should grab his heart or guard his wallet."
My other entry "If Wishes Had Wings" received an Award of Merit. The story behind it "I have always believed in wishes and that they do come true. Since childhood I have been fascinated with dragonflies, such magical creatures. What better way for good wishes to go out into the world than on the wings of magic"
