    these never look right in the photos, it distorts so much. I was touched when Father Terry blessed my sculpture. HE knows what the donation is for. 3 down more to come. All go on a totem pole.

    Pawprint jewelry would definitely sell. I've never seen anything like that before.

    GOing to make some more, it was more involved then i had intended , like everything else you just don't know until you try it. I will look at beads differently now! Keeping the round and even and nice..sighs. I got to make more because i am pretty fond of them myself. I just hope it brings a good donation. I am very disappointed that our totem pole won't be in this years auction. ESepcially after working for the last 3 weeks on it.
