Closing the Studio Door, but first a Rings and Things giveaway!

Whew! Today's Open Studio has been fun! I really enjoyed the challenge of designing and posting something new, and showing you the whole thought and design process. I hope you enjoyed it too. I need a nap now! hehe!

But before I go, I am going to leave you with one more giveaway. This one is a set of adorable glass heart beads and a strand of white bamboo coral from Rings and Things. I will pick one random winner from the comments on this post tonight at midnight, EST. Leave me a comment wishing me a safe journey next week, and you could win these beads!

Enjoy the rest of your day, and thanks for stopping by!
