Honoring...Carol Ladine Lagoski

I was very saddened to hear of the passing of one of our longtime SJA forum members...Carol Ladine Lagoski. Carol passed away in her sleep on July 10, 2011... just weeks after celebrating her 50th wedding anniversary on June 3, 2011.

Carol1350, as she was known on our forum, was an inspiration to many both on SJA and other places online that I have been connected to her. Always offering genuine encouragement and loyal support to fellow jewelry artists and forum members...we will miss her.

In Carol's memory is a small representation of her lovely creations.








Rest in peace, sweet lady!

Oh! I recognize her work from seeing older posts on the forums. I was always really impressed by her work and her wonderful encouragement to others. I noticed she hadn't posted in a long time. I'm sorry I did not get to know her. She was certainly a lovely lady and will be missed sorely.

In looking at these photos of Carol's work, I'm realizing that she had such an impressive array of eclectic talents in jewelry making. I wish that I could have gotten to know her better.

Much condolences to Carol's family and all who knew her.
