    Hi La Contessa,
    The post about applying for membership is just for fun. There is no rule nor requirement to join. We just post our creations to show and learn from other members. I am sure with your prior experience, you'll be knotting away. I knew nothing about knotting pearls until Dec '08. Now I love it. Just restringing my own pearls though. Welcome.

    Really! For his sake I hope he wasn't too close to the shore when the hurricanes were going by. On the other hand when the weather is fine you want to be near the beach. (I'm stuck in the center of the island )

    Francesca - thanks for the compliment!! The piece in your avatar is really quite stunning. Is it a family heirloom, or were you lucky enough to happen upon it somewhere?
