Dragons for the Garden

First, you have to make sure the dragons know they’re welcome. Next, send up a signal. If the dragons fly close by, you might be able to use something small: If that doesn’t work, go bigger.

Noas Glass

I love this style of glass bead. Even the lampwork is unusual. Gorgeous.
