Thank you so much for this honor! I'm looking at the incredibly cool and diverse pieces here, just delighted to see another artist who uses cranks in her work! Thank you for giving us the chance to challenge ourselves--this pendant is a laundry list of firsts for me--it was a huge learning experience!
