Portraits: Mary Jondahl and Nancy Granberg

A passion for wine has morphed into a new hobby for two Fargo women. Mary Jondahl, left, and Nancy Granberg met about four years ago through the Old Broadway’s wine club. “I started collecting corks, and my sister gave me an idea to make necklaces,” Jondahl said. “Nine months ago we started getting serious.” The women now make necklaces, keychains and bottle lanyards out of corks, beads and charms under the business name DeCoRk’d. As empty nesters, the women no longer have the time commitment of children, so they fill their time with a little wine and work. “We get to do everything we enjoy – being with each other, drinking wine and making necklaces,” Jondahl said. “We get together once a week for as long as it takes to drink a bottle of wine.”
