My necklace came home last night! I am wearing it now, even as I type (OK; even as I keyboard, but typing has a better sound to it). I sent a mere 5 inches out into the world and I now have a full necklace (it was lost for a bit, but then it turned up where it was supposed to be). I feel like I am linked (pun intended) forever to the wonderful artists who worked on it. Life is good.
Below, is a scan of my beautiful necklace.
