Got Medal?

Whew!  Art Fest is over and I had a great two days.  Now it's time to focus on the next show and keep pushing myself to make new designs with new vintage elements. 

If you're not familiar with Greater Cincinnati, Newport on the Levee is a central point for entertainment, restaurants, comedy clubs, etc. It is also a point in the course for the annual Flying Pig Marathon.  I know several people who have run it and really enjoy the course.

As I was watching the runners trail into the Levee buildings-some looking a little more haggard then the others, but good for everyone for finishing!-I got to thinking about those medals they are given for finishing.  They have very large ribbons that serve as the necklace, so you wouldn't want to wear them other than the day of.  BUT, they would make wonderful focal points on necklaces strung along with vintage rhinestone and carved bone, czech glass and wood.  So if you have one of those well-earned medals, shoot me an e-mail and we'll put something together that is beautiful, more flexible for wearing, and memorable.  Celebrate your achievement!

"And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith."  Hebrews 12:1
