First of all, thanks to all who complimented my necklace design and admired the gorgeous tagua nut beads in last week's Ecuadorian Hands giveaway.  Reader Deb Fortin is right. The intense colors of the tagua beads are perfect for summer jewelry.  As someone who lives in the north, bright colors are also very uplifting to wear during the dreary winter months.

Many of you were also appreciative of my modest effort to bring awareness to the plight of the elephants (and rhinos) in Africa.

Well, someone is going to have fun making tagua bead jewelry soon!  I numbered all the eligible entries and consulted  The random number generator there picked the number which was assigned to Dede Martini!  Congratulations!  I do not have your email address so please contact me asap or I shall redraw  next Monday.
