Yeah, that was a good surprise. Hey I wanted to ask you if I melted down some old gold necklaces of different K's would it still look nice? My aunt wants me to make her something new out of her old pieces. xoxo Hope you're well

The show opening was on thursday and it was really good. I sold a few pieces and saw a bunch of people. All the money from that is going to setting up my studio and I only have one more class. I want to see your grass pieces, do you have pictures yet?
