Lemon Quartz and Prehnite set for Annie"Lemon Quartz and Prehnite set for Annie" by Lagaz Designs (Melissa Muir) December 2007.

Well, I have participated in my first gift swap online and it went awesomely! It was at, and everyone who was involved got great gifts! I was partnered with two lovely ladies, Abi and Annie :) The above artwork and jewelry were the gifts that I had given to Annie. It was a challenge to make something for someone that you have never personally met. It was a good thing that we all included a list of likes/dislikes that helped our partners along. I was in such a hurry to get my pieces made and shipped that I forgot to take pictures! I am so glad that Annie and Abi took pictures of thier gifts, and were able to pass them along to me so that I can show them off! I don't have Abi's yet, but when I do I will post her stuff.

These are the things that I gave Abi (except for one gift, her ring, which I don't have a picture of):
