Come Fly With Me - by Trish White

For those of you who are not familiar with the Grains of Glass website, let me tell you a little tale. Ten years ago, when Facebook was a baby and enamel artists only met in conferences and workshops or discovered each other through email and books, I thought it time to start an international web site where everyone could come together in one place to share their art, friendship and knowledge. I wanted the “unknowns to become known”. When the network opened its doors, the artists lined up and the number of countries and islands grew to a global experience. With this growth, came many friendships, connections and invitations for me from overseas as well as here in the U.S. I became an “Ambassador with a broom to fly.”
