Hey everybody!  It looks like we have some great jewelry makers on board so far!  Grin  I'm getting really excited already!

I extended the sign-ups until 8/4 so that odd_artist could join us.   This always works better for me because I just found out that I'm on call the weekend of the 1st and may have some issues getting partners posted on the 2nd! 

I'll leave you gals to stalk away!  Grin
