Deryn Mentock's Mary Hettmansperger challenge . . .

I've been reading a few other artists' blogs lately and came across one that put out a challenge last June to work through making projects using techniques featured in Mary Hettmansperger's book "Wrap, Stitch, Fold & Rivet." Here I am, as always a day late and several dollars short. A friend once said of me "You are so slow you're going backwards." Well I'm not sure I'm slow but I am often a victim of my own lack of planning.

So, although this was meant to be a summer project, summer of 2008 that is, here's my entry for project number 1. Check out the details of the challenge and the entries at Deryn Mentock's blog:

I listed this necklace for sale tonight on my Etsy shop. Will I continue on through the rest of the book? Stay tuned.
