Winner Winner!!

A sincere thank you to everyone who left a comment on my last blog post, OR Facebook post, as it relates to winning this gorgeous Amazonite nugget bracelet, with a very cool inlay bead from Tibet sitting dead center:



The winner is ... Cheryl, who wrote this response on my blog:  

Moving on (Again...) and a Thank you Giveaway!

My last blog post, regarding META and its unjust shut-down of my Instagram page...twice in a month...was my most viewed/popular blog post since I began blogging in 2011. I want to thank everyone who took the time to post a comment either on my blog or on Facebook - I sincerely thank you! 


In August, my Instagram account was somehow hacked and trying to get a live person at META/Instagram is impossible.  After setting up a new account - where I have a total of 13 posts ... 11 jewelry pictures, one picture of my backyard, and the last picture of two loaves of bread I had baked.... my account was JUST suspended by Instagram because the content of my posts is not up to Instagram Standards.

In trying to follow their directions to "disagree" with their decisions, their attempts to send me a code via my verified phone number does not work.

A Walk Down Memory Lane

First off, I'd like to thank all who left comments on my last blog post (including my Face Book page)!  That post was basically about what I did with a very small amount of teeny weeny gemstone beads. I had several people comment that I should make bracelets.  I should have been more clear in my blog post.  These beads were "left overs" from previous projects - sometimes I only had 12 beads to a bag. And, with the small sizes, it would only amount to about 2" of beads.
