I was so moved when I opened the mail and saw this thank you note. A friend bought a present for his mother and he chose a bracelet I made with a wonderful blue eye trade bead from the 19th century and vintage Majorca glass pearls. His mother loved it, he said.
I work from home and while this allows me great independence and flexibility, sometimes it makes me wonder whether what I do is good or not. When a piece sells, I feel happy that it pleased someone else. It makes it easier to let go of my pieces, knowing that people are happy to have them and my pieces find good homes. Its even better when I get proof in the mail like this gracious handwritten note.
