My first year at the VFCJ Convention in 2003, my necklace was chosen for the center insert of the convention issue of the magazine!  I had no idea that 'Hearts' would be the theme of the Convention, because I made this the night before the auction there.  My Blue collar necklace and bracelet won the top bid for the entire auction.

First set for the Convention 2009, that I donated.  It was not auctioned and Cathy Gordon bought it the next day, and I also made an extra bracelet for Marilyn Ostrow, so I made $700.  $475 could have gone to the VFCJ magazine, but didn't.  Their loss, my gain.  Copper, Brass and Sterling hammered and riveted necklace, bracelet and earrings.  The rivets are set so that the bits are a bit articulated because the leaves are quite rigid and large.
