Last year, when I visited with Teresa, she showed me a note found with a necklace she’d bought at an estate sale. It was a short handwritten note with more questions than answers. The mystery intrigued and inspired Teresa to make an art piece incorporating the note with the beads from the necklace along with other icons. The piece entitled, ‘Don’t Tell Fred’, is featured in the September/October issue of Fiberarts Magazine. You can pick up a copy at Powell’s and read more about the mystery surrounding this wonderful piece.
