Long time ago, even before Orchid, I came to know, via internet and
some jewerly/wire Forums, Pat Moses Caudel. Pat was taking Fine
Silver Wire and crocheting it into various wearable jewelry. Flowers
were among her earliest creations. this was long before any books
were published. Pat's business was known as Wild Poppy. Eventually
she also had a web site, and a presence on both ebay and Etsy.
I sent Pat a birthday card a few days ago, and got a return message
from her sister Nancy, that Pat had passed away June 29. 2013. This
was shocking news. Today I had an extended conversation with her
sister Barbi Moses Gosney, who told me that death was not expected
that soon. Final arrangements have yet to be made, and I will post
more as soon as I get them. Barbi gave me perm mission to post this
online. Perhaps those of you who shared other sites with her will
share this sad message, it will be appreciated.
RIP my friend, you are missed.
