Mother/Daughter Duo Melvillyn and Her Mother in San Antonio!

While exploring the shops in La Villita, we spoke with a woman running one of the shops who asked us where we were from and what we were doing in San Antonio.  We told her about the Daughter Project and said, hey, if you have a mother or daughter in town, we'll interview you!  She said her mother had died several years ago and she was the mother of sons, but she told us about her friend who owns the stained glass store next door, whose mother works in the shop with her.  She said they'd both be there the next day (Monday) and she'd give them a heads up that we'd stop by.

So that's how we got connected with glass artist Melvillyn and her mother (who wished to remain anonymous).  We spoke with Melvillyn as she created a glass pendant in the workshop at the back of the store and with her mother as she worked the front-of-store.
