Goldie embodies the precious value of friendship. Time and distance are no challenge to a solid friendship. Whether sharing happiness or suffering, you feel better after talking with a friend. Treasure your time together, and when you see Goldie, remember the importance of friendship. We are richer for the friends we have in our lives.
Goldie has gold coins on the bottom of her shoes to represent the value of friendship in each step in life. The crossed arrows are reminders that you're glad that your paths have crossed. Goldie is sitting down because sometimes all you need to do is merely sit with a friend. Her back panel reads: "True Friend." Goldie's has a huge smile because this expression immediately brightens the day, just like a friend does.

About the Maker: Christy Coltrin
The making of this artwork started at home using clay and cake-decorating tools, as she thought about what was most important in life. Once the characters and short stories were defined, Christy took the clays into the sculpture studio she co-owns with her husband. These petite, sculptural figures are made using time-honored casting methods. Each Tiny Sparks edition is produced in two intimate sizes: the Ambassadors editions are about four finger tall, and the Travelers editions are about the size of a thumb. Slight variations in size and finish are part of the handmade charm.
