Maryann GroarkRain Forest Frog Necklace
My good friend, Maryann (mom of the adorable Maya who is sometimes seen on my home page) came by the house and was checking out my new beads. She saw this frog and fell in love! By the next day, she had it wrapped up and wore it to Maya's (many) birthday party. I love the way she used the wire and gave the frog a very nice flower to look at...very cute!

Bernie is a talented silver clay and wire artist. And as a fellow SCUBA diver, she also loves fish! We met at the 2009 Las Vegas Glass Expo and Bernie got one of my little SCUBA frogs which she put on display along side of Deb Crowley's fish beads! My little frog couldn't be happier!
