Hi again. A few weeks ago I was posting on FB and realized that it had been nearly 2 years since I created the Memory Mandala. I used the center of that design as inspiration for the Mini Mandala Earrings and decided to honor the memory of Wink and why I designed the Memory Mandala in the first place with a brand new mandala.
