My Golden Sunflower Mica Shift Pendant is Featured in a New Etsy Treasury

My friend and fellow PCAGOE team member, Ali of AlisonEKurek, created this all-PCAGOE treasury today, which she titled "Rough Yet Refined" and included my Golden Sunflower Mica Shift Pendant. Lots of beautiful goodies in this treasury, so if you haven't finished your holiday shopping yet, head on over to Etsy and check out some of these wonderful artists' shops!

And yes, Ali is the same AlisonEKurek whose "Caroling Cats ACEO" won 1st place in the December PCAGOE challenge, the theme of which was "Seasonal." What an extraordinarily talented lady!

Congratulations again, Ali, and thank you for including me in this great treasury!

And speaking of the challenge, congratulations to all the winners!

Laurel of LaurelSteven won 2nd place for her delightful Ho3 necklace, and Berit of ClayCenter won 3rd place for her festive holiday earrings! Great job, everyone!
