I know it will reach her door and she will wonder who sent it. She will open the packaging, hear the crinkle of the tissue paper and feel the texture on the wrapping. She will peel back the layers and then her eyes will meet the piece.
She will then know it was designed for her and sent as a message from far away. It spent time in my hands as leather, glass and metals were toiled together but I was simply the messenger forming words, feelings and thoughts into a tangible element.
Sometimes making a custom piece is so much more than an order.
