Sometime last year I got a package in the mail from my friend Debbie Glessner. When I opened it up and saw the two flying horse earrings I thought they were too special for me. These, I thought are something a Queen or Goddess would wear, not me.
Then I put them on.
Even when I’m working in my studio all day and never get further than the back pasture, when I wear the earrings Debbie made for me, I feel special. Like if I can wear these, I must be special.
So I asked Debbie if I could sell her earrings at the Bedlam Farm Open House in June. And I asked her why she calls them “Serendipity”. So Debbie told me the story of her earrings.
“It was about two years ago when a friend asked me to repair an earring for her. When I got out my pliers and supplies, I realized how much I still enjoyed making earrings. I still had a nice stash of beads and charms, and I got started. Well, once I got started, I couldn’t stop! When I got low on my supply, I went shopping for more. I sold three pairs promptly and encouraged by the response, I continued to design earrings and sell them. Indeed, it was serendipity that my friend asked me to repair her earring!”
SERENDIPITY is defined as “the occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way.”
Debbie hopes to pass that serendipity along in her earring to each person who wears them.
Debbie’s making more earrings for the Bedlam Farm Open House on June 25th and 26th. Here’s just a few of them…..
