In April 2012 I met Julie Woods in Dunedin when I had a meeting with her husband Ron, Julie made us coffee and toasted sandwiches and the three of us ate lunch together.
What a fun couple I had stumbled across and as fate would have it Julie & Ron were going to be travelling to Korcula later in the year. A great chance for us to re-unite and for Doka and I to show them some island hospitality.
Ron was so generous with his time and I wanted somehow to repay his kindness and decided that a piece of jewellery for Julie would be the way forward.
Here is a picture of the bead that we created for Julie;
In September Julie & Ron arrived in Korcula and found there way to our store, how fun to see them here in Korcula – and a brilliant excuse to close a little early and go out for dinner. Plus I climbed the Cathedral steps for the first time ever – quite the climb, can recommend it for the views but make sure you miss the noon or 6pm bells!
The bead that we created for Julie may look a lot like our other fabulous filigree beads, but this one has a few extra touches;
It was a nervous moment hoping that we had spelled her name correctly…
‘What’s on it?’ asked Julie
I directed her towards the J and held my breath……..
J… U… L… I… E… – success!
Both Ron & Julie were delighted with the gift and we had a hilarious evening here in Korcula with them.
Our first braille bead, what do you think?
