I have worked hours and given the item away and I get a sense of
meaningfulness to my work from it that money can’t ever convey.

I see all this talk of fancy/expensive tools and
wonder if maybe some people don’t loose sight of the importance of
developing necessary skills using minimal tools.The tools don’t give a
voice or beauty to an item you and I do…G.Chando

Hey Gavin,

RIGHT ON!

The bench jeweler has the greatest job on earth! He gets rewarded many times for
his work, 1st when he designs it, 2nd when he makes it, 3rd when the recepient
gets it & many times after when someone else admires it. We should pay folks to
make stuff for 'em. (VVBG). Wouldn’t it be nice!

Think of the satisfaction you feel when you’ve completed some difficult task, or
the envy you feel when someone describes how they’ve done something you’ve
wanted to do, but haven’t learned how.

Hope I live long enough to do 1/2 of what you guys collectively can do (never
happen!).

David,
It’s hard to explain to others and I should not even try
perhaps.People who are money oriented just don’t honor the same things
as I do.My system of beliefs like my genetic material comes from people
who were here long before Christopher Columbus blundered onto this
continent.For me it’s a foreign country now and I don’t speak the
language that most here speak is one way to put it…
