Wow Sonya, it's amazing what people have to endure and yet still find a reason to smile. I think you and Michele Gill are two awesome folks!

Sonya I am so sorry to hear of the losses you have suffered in your family. My condolences to you for this most recent loss as well. I wish you the best and hope you have a wonderful trip along the Crest trail!
Is there somewhere to see more photos of the jewelry you make?

Audrey, thank you so much for the kind words, I really appreciate it! Can't wait to hit the trail...

I sell my jewelry through Etsy and you can view it here - http://www.etsy.com/shop/MaeMonkey

Currently, the shop is very low on stopper necklaces as I just about sold out of them all during Christmas. I am making a bunch of new ones that will be posted this week, but I have to buy a new camera as mine was stolen from my hotel room while I was back home in Texas. Argh. I do a lot of custom work as well.

Thanks again!

Just sold a bunch of biners and some cams. The pile is getting smaller and smaller but there are still a few brand new and other really useful items left!

The generosity of you SuperTopians is a wonder to behold!

Hi Sonya, I am so sorry to hear about all of your losses. My thoughts and prayers are with you. So glad to see you hitting the trail in honor of your loved ones. This spring, Trevor (our son) and I hope to go skydiving in honor of Ian. We call it flying for dad. Everyone on this thread has been so thoughtful and inspiring. Whatta great bunch of folks!

Hi Michelle, that is awesome! Please take lots of pictures and share them with all of us here - would love to see you and your son's flying adventure. No doubt Ian would be quite proud. Skydiving terrifies me - I'd rather hike 2,650 miles than jump out of a plane - ha!

This is the first of Ian's stoppers that I have made into a necklace. A portion of the proceeds from this sale, and others made from his stoppers, will go to his family.

Thank you, Audrey, and by all means, please share. I have more of his stoppers to create with, this is just the start! It is truly an honor to have them to work with.

Almost forgot - you can also go to my company's Facebook page and "like" it (if you wish) to see updates and listings of his stoppers - you can always share the listing directly from my page.

You will be getting more of Ians stoppers, Sonya, as soon as I get back to Vegas. They will all have his initials stamped on them when you receive
them.

So...Mark Hudon gave me the greatest gift of all. He enlisted Sonya to make a necklace for me out of one of Ian's stoppers. What a neat surprise. I will cherish it always!!
