and this is her entry. I am so proud of Marianne!

"Elegant Romance" by Marianne Baxter of Gualala, California (2)
"When I opened the package and saw the muse all I could think about was elegant romance! I never have used Brass before, so it was hard to find any brass findings in my stash. So I combined gold with the brass in several places and I think it works. I also used several colors of gold, yellow and brown beads. Chokers remind me of old fashioned elegance. I always add two magnetic clasps when I make chokers because they are easier to put on as well as keep the choker more secure when wearing."
