Mandy and her co-conspirator at Redstart Design, Sara Shaughnessy, taught a jewelry class at Stanford University last quarter. They have taught this class in the past, but this was the first time I was able to attend their end-of-quarter exhibition on Stanford Campus. I was impressed at the quality of the jewelry design and prototypes the students were able to produce in just three months!
At the show, I bumped into Kendrick Kwok, who originally wrote to me three years ago while looking for underwater photography gear. He's now a photo researcher at Time Magazine in Hong Kong.
