What an Honor!
I was blown away when my Mom called and said, You made it on the front page of Charlotte Style! I was in the studio and hadn't made it out that day but once my husband came home, he was carrying a small stack of Newspapers....you could tell, he was beaming with pride. He has so much confidence in my work, LOL...probably more than I do.
It was so important for me to come back to NC to make my jewelry and then to be recognized this way, it's an amazing feeling.
I can't thank Olivia Fortson (writer) and Kiran Dodeja Smith (photographer) for visiting my studio and getting to know me and my work...what awesome people to meet.
I ofter kid around with people that I wear bunny slippers to work but Olivia was right, I actually curl up my legs in my chair looking at my mandrel, visualizing my next project, and yes...barefoot and very happy with my job.
THANK YOU CHARLOTTE, NC!!!
