An Award for Me?!

It was my birthday the other day and what a wonderful surprise when dear friend and brilliant contemporary jeweller Rebecca Ward (aka Rebecca the Wrecker) gave me the gift above.

It's an award she told me - The Windbag Award! Of course I was suitably impressed and thrilled to receive such a prestigious honour from my peers :)

The rock in the brooch is from Windbag Creek in New Zealand and as you can see from the sign they call it The Windbag for short....just like my blog nickname!

Rebecca reckons I rock (lol) but of course it is she who rocks :-D Thanks Bec!!
