To Megan, Laurie, and Debi, the ladies at Blue Heron Jewelry in Poulsbo who keep me motivated to write books.
With this book I got to work with Susan Christophersen, who was assigned to lead the team on this book as well as perform the copy editing. Susan, you kept up with a ridiculous schedule admirably and I hope we work together often. Thanks also to Earl Boysen for his able work as technical editor. Last but never least, thanks to Katie Mohr, my favorite Acquisitions Editor, for giving me the opportunity to write this book.
