I’ve been lucky enough to get The Sampler last month and the month before! One of my assortments even included a necklace by one of my favorite jewelry makers ever.

And then I took my masterful painting hand to the outside complete with a coat of silver glitter paint on each of the beads. I shoulda been a fine arts major I tell ya! ha ha…
