When I first heard the news that her cancer was back I never dreamed in a few short months the world would loose such a wonderfully talented soul.
I was inspired by Judy's style and told her so. She helped me find my style and helped me start etching copper, which is something I truly love doing and will be ever grateful for.
I have many of Judy's vintage pieces and when I heard of her passing I went to her shop Flap Your Wings and purchased a pair of earrings that have etched copper in them, something I will always remember her for. I also purchased a few of her hand cut blanks to do my own etchings on.
I wish I had enough money to buy this necklace too:
As some of you know I lost my friend and mentor Tom Holcomb, celebrity nail technician last year.
I have now lost another friend and mentor, Judith Glende.
I had heard once that loosing a loved one is like loosing a limb, you can go on without them but life will never be the same.
My prayers go out to Judy's family and friend's. I am so sorry for your loss.
I will miss you my friend.
