My treat to me from the Plowshare Show
Could not resisit it -saw it wanted it. Walked over and asked the artist if she ever considered trades. Turns out she had been wondering if I would swap some yarn for something of hers :)
And here it is.
Its a beautiful nickel/silver base with copper accents topped with an oxidized rainbow jasper.
