To Antarctica and Back

One of the best things about being at the Sun Peaks Christmas market was meeting Justine who was raising money for her trip to Antarctica with the "Students on Ice" program.   She arrived back from her trip and sent us this photo of her holding up one of our pendants while on the expedition.  We were following her adventure on the website (you can see some video footage here) and we feel like a part of us was with her!

It looks like rocks in the background but if you look real close you will see they are penguins.  Here is a photo she also sent of the cute little guys!

Just on an egotistic note, our jewelry has been worn on  every continent on earth!   (Now if I can only get to know an astronaut.)  lol!

Extremely cool story Carolyn! Not many artists could say their work has been to Antarctica. Justine sounds like an amazing girl. Will have to go and check out her videos. Such and incredible, once in a lifetime opportunity!

Justine is amazing like you said. This was a trip of a lifetime as very few make it to the Antarctica! Was so neat to have a part of us go with her!

This story is so cool (pun intended) that I'm mentioning it in my upcoming newsletter! Thanks for sharing -- woo-hoo!
