Last weekend a number of artists from around the country gathered together in Indianaoplis IN. To take part in the annual Eiteljorg Indian Fair & Market. It was great to hang out and chat with old and new friends. As for myself wasn’t a Division Winner or Best of Show.. But I did recieved 1st place for my “Love and Diamonds bracelet and 2nd place for the #8 Bolo. It wasnt complete until I was able to make it to St. Elmo’s Steakhouse to have their awesome Porterhouse and watch my friends enjoy their famous Shrimp cocktail. Made with tons of fresh horesradish.
