June’s Review Winner is Here

Written by Diane Rein

Congratulations to Neda Heeter, the winner of the Cool Tools Random Review Contest. Neda has won a $100 gift certificate for reviewing the Cool Tools Patina Gel she purchased. Neda gave the Patina Gel a top 5-Star rating and called it ” Easy to Use”.

Neda was excited and told us a little about herself:

Making jewelry is a very, very new hobby for me.  I took one class this spring in Clay Jewelry at our local museum- The Vero Beach Museum of Art- with an excellent teacher, Linda Kline. Unfortunately, there were not enough students signed up for the next set of classes (I live in a seasonal community) so they were suspended until November. I can’t wait for them to resume so I can continue my adventure.

I am not an “artist” but I love jewelry and I had been several times encouraged to try my hand at this class. I had finished a difficult year with the illness and subsequent death of my mom as well as having just completed the second of chairing a major fundraising event for the Homeless Family Center in our town. It felt like a good time to explore a new hobby.

While my “creations” are not particularly unique or special, I find the process extremely relaxing.

Winning the June random drawing was quite a surprise. The gift certificate will help me buy more materials for my new hobby.

Thank you Cool Tools for my $100 gift certificate. I can’t wait to use it.

Attached is a photo of me from my 60th birthday party which I celebrated by holding a party for all the residents of the Homeless Family Center. I’m wearing earrings that I made.
