For a long time, I hoarded the items that were published. They make a great display at bead shows and give people ideas on what they can do with my components. And I will still keep some of the best pieces that are good examples using my beads. But it feels good to finally let go and get these creations into the hands (and on the necks!) of people who will wear and love them like I do.
