This took so long because I took so long to complete this prize - my apologies all around! It's a busy time of year. Heather chose a random pattern of green beads - and this is the lovely result of my interpretation of her directions! I think it is gorgeous - reminds me of emeralds and snakeskin. That might not sound beautiful to you, but I think snakes can have lovely patterns and be a great source of inspiration!
If that isn't your cup of tea, what does this bangle remind you of?!

Round 3 begins when followers reach 84! I'm thinking that since I'm getting more followers (hopefully!), and that means a smaller chance for you, my faithful readers, to win (which isn't a good way to encourage you to share this blog with others!), that I might giveaway 2 prizes instead of a larger prize. What do you all think about that? Let your voice be heard or forever hold your peace!
