The whole article and the picture is so touching, really I am beyond words. I hope you'll take a moment to read it on the Claire Ishino blog.
|handmade jewelery by Claire Ishino|
Claire and I have been online friends for a few of years having met through our Etsy shops. She designs and makes this beautiful jewelery. About two years ago Claire moved back to Australia with her young family (from Japan). We've kept in touch during that time and Claire is another person who I am proud to call my friend even though we have never met.
