      I promise I will as soon as it is complete, which will have to be by March since I got fanaggled into entering it into Our Kingdom Art competition that I keep saying I never want to enter again! Hence, the documentation. I am not much on spending time writing documentation since it is time I could be sewing!

      I am almost done now but with me it is always hard to stop! I have loved doing it and it is one of those create as you go projects that just keep growing. I am very excited about it. I hope you ladies will think it is as nice as I do. Having the experts look at my work is always scary to me! But as I said I hope to have it at Estrella for those who will be there and care to take a look.

      Illora,
      Since Aelia and Tangwystyl have covered most of the available
      documentation, (which is to say, there's not half as much as we'd
      like) I'll just add that there is more documentation on the use of
      glass stones in jewellery and in stitched jewelled textile decoration
      in Medieval European Jewellery, by Ronald Lightbown, V&A Museum 1992,
      ISBN 0-948107-87-1.

      Are you planning to take pictures of your finished piece? I'd love
      to see it.... (no pressure)....

      Aldith
