So this weekend, Antony and I took part in an Autumn Craft Fair at the Elan Valley Visitor Centre, Rhayader. It is an amazing place for anyone to visit. What made it special for us, was that a customer had an incredible family connection. A lady and gentleman looked at our work for a long time and at one of our products in particular. Our 'Inspired by' series of pendants, which are based on Literary or Artistic subject matter, caught their attention. The lady was trying to decide whether to buy the pendant based on Anne Bronte's poem 'Bluebell' or 'Daffodils' by William Wordsworth. Antony decided to explain to them about why and how we created them. He began with the 'Daffodils'. The lady stopped him to tell us that she was actually William Wordsworths' 4th Great Grand Daughter. Wow, how wonderful. After a lengthy conversation, they bought some items and we gave her as a gift, the 'Daffodils' pendant. She was surprised but thanked us very much. It could not have gone to a better home. You see, you never know who you are going to talk to next.
I wonder who we will meet next?
