This morning I received the loveliest gift from a woman in my old stomping grounds (Minneapolis), whom I do not know. But it seriously melted my heart, so I want to share it with you. She saw me post in a facebook group that we both belong to, and sent me a private message. If you've read my home page, you know that I began my work by wire wrapping. So here's her story.
"I just have to share a story with you... 8 or 9 years ago I started wire wrapping stones. I really got into it and loved doing it. I got to know the folks at The Enchanted Rock garden well. One day I was telling Mary how I really wished I could learn more and maybe be a "real" jeweler. She said oh, I know this gal... And she showed me your website and told me a bit about you and basically said "I know you can do it". Over the years I've spent HOURS looking at your work and dreaming... I just thought you should know you have truly inspired someone and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!"
