Dear Frances McCrory,

The International Library of Poetry's Editors recently notified you of your selection to participate in The Best Poems and Poets of 2007. You were one of a select group of poets chosen because of your exceptional talent and the artistic foresight displayed in your poetic writings. All of us here are confident that your unique talent and artistic vision contributed to the importance and appeal of this special contest. In recognition of your poetic achievement, you are now a member of an exclusive group of the "Best Poets" from all around the world.

To further commemorate your accomplishment and participation in this historic series, we are excited to inform you that you are now eligible to receive the Best Poems and Poets Limited Edition Commemorative Pin. This stunning pin, crafted with 24-karat gold, proudly displays your status as a member of poetry's elite . . . a member of the "Best Poets" from all over the world! This is an honor that you worked relentlessly to acquire, and you should be very proud of your creative achievement.

When we decided to honor this talented group of poets with a commemorative pin, we searched for a designer with a reputation for creating the finest, most exquisite jewelry on the market today. With over thirty years of experience, Doug Weldon has crafted numerous emblematic jewelry pieces, including countless rings for past World Series and Super Bowl champions. Mr. Weldon's meticulous craftsmanship highlights the significance of each piece of jewelry through the unprecedented detail conveyed with each design. Mr. Weldon used this same care and precision when he created the Best Poems and Poets Limited Edition Commemorative Pin. This striking jewelry piece has the official Best Poems and Poets emblem set with 24-karat gold and rich midnight blue Cloisonné enameled highlights. It is truly a masterpiece that honors your outstanding accomplishment.
