    I had the pleasure to meet Rosa at the Adler center. I worked with her the past few years at jewelry making class. We had a lot of fun with cooking class also. I was so grateful that last semester, we were able to be side-by-side again during Art class. Her lovely pieces are still hanging on the wall. Hugs! Rosa xox
