Thank you, Seth.
Several years ago, I read an article about Carol's etching process and thought to myself how much I wanted to learn about that. I kept the article, and reread it, noting that she was near me.
And then my local metal arts guild announced a workshop with her -- I signed up sooo fast!
Now, understand that I had only been involved in jewelry / metal-smithing for a short while, so I was pretty much a novice. Carol walked me through what I didn't understand and made me feel I could do it.
Those pieces I made that day still make me smile.
I was also fortunate to be able to take another workshop with her the following year.
So sorry she's gone. I feel so fortunate to have known her and seen her stunning work and gotten exposed to her amazing skills.
She will be missed.
