Making Necklaces!!! :o)

Hello Everyone!
I've been experimenting with making necklaces from images of my artwork.  I've been using 1" glass tiles and I've already got a small shop along the beach in Florida interested in carrying my work!  As soon as I finish the rest of this group, scan the images and write descriptions I will be selling these cuties in my etsy shop!

Martin T. "Marty" Butler... You'll Be Missed...

July 9, 1947 - January 27, 2010

Marty Butler of Vancouver, WA, passed away on Jan. 27, 2010. He was born in Seattle, WA and lived most of his life in Edmonds, WA.
His promotion with the Washington State Patrol brought him to Vancouver in 1992.

Marty served as a Captain in the Army and received his Bachelors degree from University of Washington. He had a distinguished career with the WSP for over 28 years, retiring in 2003.

Retirement brought Marty to a new calling as a driver with Volunteer Chore Services (Catholic Community Services). He cared deeply for his clients and volunteered for over five years until his recent illness prevented him from continuing.

Marty is survived by his wife, Anne, at home in Vancouver; his sons, Justin (Kari Young), Jamie and Kristin, Seattle, WA; and Anne's son, Chad Schwendiman of Vancouver; siblings include his sister, Joan Evans (Tom), Brier, WA and brother Scott (Cindy), Republic, WA; nephews, Mike and Ben Evans; niece, Christine…
