A gift for Robert Ebendorf

During our workshop with Robert Ebendorf at the Southwest School of Art and Craft, Gary Schott (the metals department Chair) suggested to all the participants at the workshop to create a charm.
All the charms were used to make a necklace that we gave to Robert as a surprise thank you gift from all of us.
We all loved the idea and each one of the participants made a charm.
My charm was a little bronze clay tree of life that I attached to a copper background with a rivet and a tab.
I wanted to give Robert something that is close to my heart and that represents my work.

Robert was very surprised and overwhelmed by our gift. It was a pleasure to look at him while he was touching the charms and talking about each one of them. I was very lucky to be right next to him!

THANK YOU Robert for such an amazing experience!
