I've changed my header Photograph...

As you can see - my header has changed from my Battle of the Beadsmith 2015 submission to a lovely piece I finished a month and a half ago.  The Cabachon is Malachite-Azurite and I cabbed this piece myself from a twin that I have with Deborah Apodaca.  Speaking of Deborah - she is the person that took the photograph of this piece and if you are looking for a superb photographer for your jewelry needs please give her a call or send her an email.  She is doing websites for " The Central Florida Bead Society " , Anne Hess and other artisans. 

To see an example of her work - www.annehesseart.com

and to contact her - deborahapodaca1@gmail.com

Please tell her I sent you. 

Any how - why did I remove last years?  Because it is time for the 2016 Battle of the Beadsmith.
I am in Battle Group C ( oh no - Nikki Messal - Courtney Phillips - Joanne Zammit - Betty Cox - my partner from last year - Rebecca Williams ---- Oh such talent in this group ) .  So?  What shall it be?  You'll just have to stand by.
